Roger Moore Opposes Pig Factory Farm Development

The veteran actor famous for his role as James Bond is speaking out against the construction of a factory farm in England.

English actor Roger Moore, famous for his turn as James Bond, is making headlines for speaking out against the development of an industrial pig farm in the Foston, Derbyshire region of England. The veteran actor is supporting campaign group Pig Business in hopes of blocking the 25,000-sow farm from the area. Moore joins residents in voicing concern over animal welfare, calling factory-farming facilities “concentration camps for animals,” and stating that he believes the meat produced at such places is unhealthy. Midland Pig Producers have disregarded his concerns, claiming the facility would be focused on high welfare and that a need for more meat production in the country is necessary.
