Animal welfare officials have called for stiffer penalties for animal cruelty after two farmers were reportedly seen riding on a pig’s back for several years. Sources have named the men as Eddie Downey and Pat Smith, and say they “travelled the country” on the animal’s back. Both are described as being “heavyweights” in their fields.
Said one upset farmer collecting his CAP cheque yesterday, “It brings tears to my eyes when I think of it. The rest of us were just left trotting after them.” The scandal comes amidst growing international concern over Ireland’s performance on animal welfare. Earlier this year, Social Democrat TD Catherine Murphy was criticised for throwing a cat amongst pigeons and simultaneously disturbing a hornets’ nest, while broadcaster Ray D’Arcy has had his ass kicked several times. Wild gooses chases are also very common, especially amongst the Gardaí.
