2018 Survey about Awareness of Animals in Agriculture Business
The Animal Rights Center has been taking annual surveys about awareness of animals in the agriculture business by using an outsourced company since 2016.
We’d like to share the results of the survey in 2018 here.
Here are 10 questions:
- Do you know many mother sows are confined in a cage called gestation crates that are so small that she cannot turn around?
- Do you know many piglets get castrated, and their tails and teeth mutilated without anesthesia?
- Do you know many egg hens are confined in a 22 cm x 22cm metal mesh cage called battery cages?
- Do you know many egg hens get their beaks mutilated without anesthesia?
- Do you know broilers are genetically modified to grow fast, and as a result, they tend to get diseases easily?
- Do you know many dairy cows spend their entire day being chained?
- Do you know many cows get castrated and get their horns mutilated without anesthesia?
- Do you know the words “animal welfare” or “Dobutsu Fukushi (animal welfare in Japanese)”?
- Do you know cage-free eggs or free-range eggs are available at supermarkets?
- Do you know animal raising methods that are prohibited in Europe are still practiced in Japan?
However, it’s notable it’s risen in every question.
On average, the awareness was about 15% in 2016, 17% in 2017, and 20% in 2018.
