SPCA Lays Criminal Charges Against Tiger Brands

Tiger Brands, South Africa’s biggest food company, has had criminal charges laid against it by an animal-rights group - the National Council of SPCAs - over a pig slaughter method that involves the animals being gassed to death in cages after being lowered into a pit.

In a press statement, the organisation says it laid the charges because its concerns have not been addressed.

It notes that the system involves the suffocation of the pigs with carbon dioxide before they are slaughtered.

Free-Range Food a Can of Worms - NGO

Animal rights organisation, Beauty without Cruelty, says there is no such thing as a happy chicken.
 
The organisation’s national chairperson, Beryl Scott, says because of the treatment of even so-called free-range animals in South Africa, the organisation does not advocate the eating of chickens, eggs or other meat in South Africa.
 
Though consumers have the option of buying free-range eggs and organic meat, South Africa does not have laws that clearly define the terms ‘free range’ or ‘organic’.
