Almost 2,000 people have signed an online petition to Causeway Coast & Glens Borough Council to say no to the development of a large pig farm on the outskirts of Limavady.
Those behind the petition have stated their reasons as follows: “The impact on our homes, community and environment will be devastating with this barbaric 24/7 operation that is being planned.”
“The smell, noise and constant traffic created by this plant will permanently damage our community, threaten the health of our children and have a long lasting effect on our beautiful countryside setting, it MUST be stopped.”
“The barbaric nature in which these animals are kept and reared is one that has been protested around the world and must be brought to an end. Please sign this petition to save our homes, our community and help protect these animals from the impending cruelty at which they will suffer.”
