A semi-trailer carrying 200 pigs overturned yesterday on Saint-Roch-de-l’Achigan in the Lanaudière area ofQuebec.
Unfortunately, the TVA coverage, noting that the trucker was not seriously injured, describes the suffering the animals endured in a humorous tone, comparing their capture to transfer them into another transport truck to a rodeo.
The footage airing behind these callous remarks is shocking and clearly shows the fear of the pigs and the brutal handling of them (including the pigs being pushed from the truck and tumbling to the ground).
Please let TVA know that their light coverage of the accident is inappropriate and unacceptable.
