A radio programme due to be promote on Channel 4 tonight, Tuesday, Jan 14, has been heavily criticised by a Irish Cattle and Sheep Farmers’ Association (ICSA), that says that a programme “glamourises rapist activity”.

According to Edmond Phelan, a association’s president, a programme – entitled ‘How to Steal Pigs’ – “incites animal extremists to invade farms and take pigs apparently on a basement that this would be good for a pigs’ welfare”.

Phelan claimed that broadcasting a programme would “represent a new low for formerly reputable media”.

This is grossly insane and can be seen as an incitement to loathing of pig farmers. It beggars faith that any obliged media opening would condone, let alone glamourise blatant rapist activity.

“It is also grossly insane in animal gratification terms since a biosecurity crack of invading a pig plantation could potentially discredit a health of all pigs on a plantation and potentially means a catastrophic illness outbreak,” a ICSA boss added.

“It is also misleading as to how a stolen pigs would be looked after. There is small doubt that portraying hidden pigs as consequence-free is only plain wrong,” Phelan concluded.

The ICSA also called on Channel 4 sponsors Mitsubishi to repel all appropriation unless a programme is pulled from a air.

Amanda Gibson, the press open family manager for Mitsubishi in a UK, said: “We try to sojourn neutral on emotive topics. However, a arriving documentary has a intensity to means distress. Therefore, we will not be comparing ourselves with this documentary. Mitsubishi Motors in a UK does not acquit steal or bootleg and insane activity in any form.”

The greeting from a ICSA mirrors a greeting from UK plantation organisations.

Lizzie Wilson, process services officer with a country’s National Pig Association (NPA) commented: “This is an intensely insane programme that appears to be compelling and glamourising rapist activity.

“Our members have already suffered adequate from a actions of activists that can move despondency to tillage families who have finished zero wrong, while also posing health and gratification risks to a pigs – this feels like a serve flog in a teeth,” Wilson added.
