"Pigging in the maintenance of pipelines refers to the practice of using ...
'pigs' to perform various operations on a pipeline without stopping
the flow of the product in the pipeline."
It has come to my attention that
animals have been and are
still being used in inhumane ways
to clean, unclog, and
inspect the inside of pipelines in
the name of oil consumption.
This is one device used to send
them in or get them back out ---->
called a "launcher/Retriever"
that is, assuming they are in good enough shape
to have made it through the pipe
and take back out. Brutal - I know!
This all happens while the crude
oil is STILL FLOWING!
I have no idea how that affects
the bacon or the ribs but believe it causes more
unnecessary stress to the ordinary
'Sus scrofa domesticus' than is due them
and probably affects their taste tremendously.
Ever eat an extremely tough or very oily pork roast?
As if it's not harsh enough to use animals
for testing chemicals and human products...
We must try and put a stop to this unmerciful, callous
treatment of animals!
it's time to
SAVE THE PIGS!
