Wongalea Piggery in Quinalow QLD was exposed by Animal Liberation ACT in October 2013 with the release of covertly-obtained photos and footage depicting the same industry-standard cruelty seen earlier at Wally's Piggery, Allain's Piggery, Tennessee Piggery, Lansdowne Piggery, Strathvean Piggery, Boen Boe Piggery and Pine Park Piggery.
At Wongalea Piggery QLD, sows are confined to tiny metal cages within 'farrowing crates', where they are kept for six weeks at a time before their babies are taken from them and they are moved off to be forcefully reimpregnated once more. In these filthy hard-floored crates, piglets were found dead and dying, after having their tails, teeth and ears cut without pain relief, as is standard in the Australian pig farming industry.
