Among the issues that Avaaz is taking on is the torture of animals on farms. For one thing, the meats that people eat come from farms. It is bad enough that the animals have to be killed in order to feed people. Things get worse when it comes to the method of killing the animals. An unfortunate occurrence has been discovered at one of the farms. A farmer by the name of Adriaan Straathof has a few farms where animals are being tortured. As of right now, there are ideas being bounced around as to how to put a stop to all of this.
One idea that is being passed around is to enforce stricter laws with the purpose of making it so that Adriaan Straathof is unable to farm. After all, these practices are cruel to animals. Often times, people who engage in these types of practices are not going to change the way they do things. Therefore, it is important to find ways to keep him from doing this to his own animals. The nature of these atrocities committed on the farms are more than disconcerting and revolting. Fortunately, Avaaz has shed some light on this issue for various people in the world to see.
Among the atrocities that have happened in the farm is that tons of pigs have been locked up with nowhere to go. Also, sick piglets have been beaten to death. The farm areas have also been overcrowded. Another disconcerting thing is that a lot of animals with broken bones have been neglected. There are also animals with organs sticking out. Given the nature of his offenses, Germany has banned his farming. With a reputation as gruesome as Adriaan’s, it is only a matter of time before he loses his farms completely and permanently.
