If you went to a concert from May through August of this year, you probably signed the peta2 petition for the Woof campaign. Thank you for that—you’re helping to make headlines!

I know sometimes your lazy, pessimistic friends ask you what good it’ll do to sign a petition at a show or online. Well, let me tell you something—it does a lot! We sent every single one of those petitions from Warped Tour, Mayhem Festival, and other shows to Hormel’s corporate headquarters last week. You can read the press release here. This was in response to an investigation which found truly terrifying abuse of animals at an Iowa pig factory farm which supplies piglets who are raised and killed for Hormel products. If you haven’t seen it yet, you should look at this.

Along with sending the petitions to Hormel and other meat companies, we explained that 275,000 of you took the time to ask for pigs to be given better protection. Considering it’s illegal to be cruel to a dog, why would it be ok to abuse a pig who suffers just the same?

I just wanted to let everyone know that the petitions became a top news story in the local paper of Hormel’s hometown of Austin, Minnesota! That means that their corporate employees are finding it that much more difficult to justify the cruelty seen in this video, and we’re really bringing the pressure against companies! It also goes to show that people do care about animals and want to stop cruelty to animals. Read the full news article here.

Thank you all! Now go brag to your parents, friends, and family that you’re helping make a difference!

    Well done Peta2 & all the Street Teamers!
    I’ve read some of the responses on that article and people just don’t seem to understand that pigs are intelligent as dogs! They’re saying things like “I’d never eat my pets” but they don’t realise that pigs, chickens, cows etc. CAN be ‘pets’ too!
