On Egypt's Pig Cull

Animal Person

I received an e-mail from the well-meaning Wendy at Compassion in World Farming (which I find an odd combination of words) regarding Egypt's pig cull and asking me to send my protest to the Egyptian Government. CIWF wants to "halt the brutal killing of these animals, and to ensure that they can be assured of a humane future." Do the people who are so upset about the pig cull in Egypt realize that the pig cull happens every day, all around the world?

Note to Those Wanting Promotion: Pay Attention

And if Compassion in World Farming wanted to see if I knew of their campaigns and might want to support them, they could have easily Googled CIWF right at Animal Person, at which point they'd find: On Compassion in World Farming. On Egypt's Pig Cull. We bloggers often get e-mails from individuals and organizations in search of promotion. And that's fine, as we all want to spread the news of fantastic work that needs support. Case in point: AnimalEquality.
