Millions of European piglets are painfully castrated, have their tails cut or burned off, and their teeth clipped or ground away.
Call on agricultural ministers to help us change this. If you’re from outside the EU you can also sign. The EU exports pigs and pork products to every country in the world, so international trade also drives these mutilations. Act now to end pig pain.

Millions of male piglets are painfully castrated in the European Union every year to avoid the risk of boar taint. This is unnecessary, as more humane alternatives exist. Pigs can be kept whole, or vaccinated against boar taint. Act now to help us change this.
