The past, present and future of our campaign against the Australian pig farming industry.
This article relates to the following facility: Boen Boe Stud Piggery (Aussie Pigs)
Up to 200 pigs are thought to have been killed in a fire on a stud in the New South Wales southern highlands.
Fire crews were called to the Boen Boe piggery at Joadja near Bowral at about 10:00am on Thursday.
Inspector David Bartlett from the southern highlands Rural Fire Service said crews arrived to find multiple sheds alight.
"The sheds were holding livestock. From what I understand there has been multiple livestock losses due to the fire," he said.
"We do have a fire investigator investigating the fire as we speak but those circumstances of the fire are yet to be determined."
A Department of Primary Industries vet was on scene treating injured livestock.
The blaze took three hours for firefighters to extinguish.
Police are now investigating the cause.
