Stop Farm Animals From Being Injured and Tortured by Electrocution

Target: Marie-Claude Bibeau, Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food, Canada

Goal: Ban the use of electric cattle prods.

Farm animals have been electrocuted by cattle prods for over 80 years. Pigs, bison, cattle, sheep, and horses are forced into unpleasant or frightening situations by electric shocks to their bodies. Animal behaviorists, including renowned Dr. Temple Grandin, say electric cattle prods should never be used to raise or handle livestock, yet animals continually suffer abuse from these ghastly implements.

Electric prods deliver up to 5,000 volts of electricity and cause significant pain. Besides the immediate agony, the animals suffer chronic medical issues such as a weakened immune system, damaged rumen function, reduced weight gain, and impaired reproductive ability.

Animals also suffer psychological damage. Studies have shown that they remember being prodded, and their stress and anxiety increases when they return to an area where they had previously been shocked.

Numerous cases have been documented showing disgusting and horrible abuse of electric prods in handling and transport. There are regulations in place restricting the use of electric prods on livestock, but these are not sufficient to protect the animals from abuse. Electric prods are cheap and can be easily purchased, and there is no way to stop unethical users from mistreating animals in their care. These torturous tools must be banned completely.

Sign this petition to stop the use of electric prods for good.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Honourable Bibeau,

Electric cattle prods are a cruel and unnecessary implement and should no longer be used. Numerous reports have shown the abuse animals suffer from prods in handling and transport. The NFACC’s regulations governing the use of electric prods are insufficient. Furthermore, these regulations cannot be properly enforced and livestock are being pointlessly electrocuted by unethical handlers.

As well as the immediate pain, electric prods cause chronic issues. Animals are suffering from damage to their immune system, rumen function, reproduction, and to their overall health and psychological well-being.

Cattle prods have been misused for over 80 years. Horses, pigs, cattle, and other livestock are all subjected to this unnecessary handling method. This cruel practice is obsolete and needs to be replaced with low stress handling techniques.

I urge you to revise the current codes of practice that govern the welfare of farm animals, and completely ban the use and sale of electric prods.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. and this is one of the reasons i stopped eating meat 7 years ago…it really upsets me to know that farm animals are treated with such abuse and pain just because they are farm animals…no consideration that these animals have a heart & feelings and are sociable, but because these POS that tend to them have no soul & so much hate they love to torture these animals…..which proves to me these assholes are cowards & this is how they feel like they have POWER…may all these demonic low life creatures feel one day the EXACT PAIN they inflicted on these animals, and suffer LONG & IN PAIN..

    Anyone that does this is Sick! And the sad part of it is, it doesn’t bother them one bit to do it. In fact a lot of them enjoy inflicting the pain! That should tell you all you need to know about that person.

  3. susan mccarron says:

      Yes they need to!! I’m so upset reading this & seeing the picture! Wish I could go there & stop them & electrocute the weak little monster coward ‘boys’ over & over!!! There’s too many people in the world & I feel for the animals so much!! I have hardly eaten meat my whole life & don’t have dairy for 7 years. I don’t want to be a part of pain & death & it’s not good for a few reasons. Animals come to me without knowing me, they know I love & care

  4. stop human garbage says:

    MEN RUN AND RUIN EVERYTHING THEY TOUCH WITH WHITE MIGHT POWER AND GREED! MEN NEED TO STOP ABUSING WOMEN CHILDREN ANIMALS BROWN/BLACK MEN OR THIS PLANET IS DOOMED AND DESERVES THE RATH!

  5. Ravinder Singh says:

    Put them in the the place of these voiceless and give them the same shock.Bastards humans.Not require ion this planet.

  6. I also agree with Rebecca Cowart, I stopped eating meat for this very reason, those poor animals have feelings just like we do and they suffer so much, they are treated so badly

  7. Animal abusers globally, must be exterminated. I am, ready, willing and able to help perform this procedure.

  8. Those who abuse animals with cattle prods need the same treatment! Let them see how it feels. Animals are at the mercy of abusive, monstereus humans who care nothing for their welfare or feelings. That’s why I’m vegan!!

  9. I don’t know how this Marie-Claude Bibeau, Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food, Canada can even look at herself in the mirror. There was a time years ago when farming was a respected and honourable career choice but since the arrival of horrific intensive factory farming, it has become nothing more than a place where psychos can practice their sadistic, perversions on helpless livestock all in the name of greed/money. There is absolutely no need to treat these animals like this! Sick, cowardly morons who would do such a thing, as well as, the ignorant, greedy politician heading up the Ministry

  10. Please make these horrible abusers stop doing this Proverbs 12:10

  11. Charleen Murphy says:

    Me too, what coward fwits they are!! You’re FD in the head if you don’t care about this, anyone out there too! They are precious beings who are deserving of only love & peace in their lives

  12. Is OUR CANADIAN MINISTER NOT HAD A DECENT CHILDHOOD ???? THATS MADE HER INTO SUCH A HEARTLESS BITCH !!!

  14. Is the ministry listening to our petitions ???

  15. This vile and evil deliberate sadism and evilness committed against precious and innocent animals must be stopped and banned immediately.Absolutely sickening and unforgivable.

  16. one must exterminate these devils

  17. SOMEONE PLEASE STOP THIS EVIL TRASH!THERE IS NOT ANY WORDS TO DESSCRIBE THIS LOWEST SCUM OF THE EARTH ANIMAL TORTURERS. Fucking sadists need CULLING NOW!!!!! sick of this shit

  18. I can’t believe this world is this cruel. I have absolutely no faith in humanity. The scumbags that can do this and go on with their life are truly evil.
