Could an App Change the Way We See Pigs?
Pig Chase was designed to help satisfy a European Union directive requiring farmers to provide pigs with entertainment to lessen the stress that causes pigs to attack each other in cramped factory-farm conditions.
While a game can’t change the intensive confinement, multiple mutilations, and filthy conditions to which pigs are subjected on factory farms, perhaps it will help people start to see pigs for the bright, inquisitive animals they are and help pigs pass the time. People may start to realize that if we wouldn’t eat the dog we play fetch with, we shouldn’t eat the pig we play chase with. And that will make a big difference for pigs on farms.
