So how does one stoop lower in standards than McDonalds, Burger King and Wendys? Before you dial up Domino’s for your next pizza, you need to read this. Regardless of whether you are a vegan, animal activist or absolutely can’t live without your big juicy steaks, I’m certain we all will agree that the behavior described below needs to be stopped.
Other fast food places have at least had the decency to stop the practice of using gestation crates for their pregnant pigs but Dominos still allows them.
Pregnant pigs are kept in gestation crates for about four months of pregnancy, their piglets are taken away after just a few weeks and then the pigs are impregnated again and forced into gestation crates for another cruel cycle. This madness goes on for years until the poor pigs are so worn down that her best use for the industry is slaughter. Companies like Domino’s should not tolerate this and consumers should not buy the product of such horrific suffering.
Whether you’re a vegan, vegetarian, the biggest carnivore on the planet or somewhere in between, please join us in asking Domino’s to do the right thing and stop using these cruel gestation crates.
McDonald’s even said it “believes gestation stalls are not a sustainable production system for the future,” and that there “are alternatives that are better for the welfare of sows.”
If all these huge companies can commit to getting rid of gestation crates, why is Domino’s unwilling to listen to the rest of the industry and consumer demand? Will ham, sausage, and pepperoni taste any different without this extreme cruelty? I doubt it!
