“With these new images, we show that the situation of these pigs whose suffering was denounced in 2020 has not changed“, deplores Brigitte Gothière, co-founder of L214. Meanwhile, with new images to support, L214 calls into question the conclusions of an inspection of state services in a breeding farm in the Allier.
This was targeted in December 2020 by a campaign of the association. On December 2 and 3, 2020, to verify these accusations, this farm was checked by three state inspectors. Here is what the Allier prefecture concluded in a press release: “In general, the inspection concludes that the farm is in good condition and that there is no major non-conformity.. “But the association is based on new images shot in the same farm but after the inspection.
Contacted by Brut, the Allier prefecture specifies that the December inspection had highlighted “minor or moderate non-conformities justifying a formal notice from the breeding (…) asking them to bring themselves into conformity. “This information did not appear in the December press release. Informed of the release of a new video from L214, the state services carried out a new check on February 10, 2021. Requested by Brut, the Ministry of Agriculture did not wish to react.
