Fresh call to pull down online farm map

Australia

Agriculture Minister David Littleproud is ramping up pressure on an animal rights group to pull down a controversial map of farm locations, after a piggery was broken into, allegedly by activists.

Mr Littleproud says the piggery was on the map maintained by Aussie Farms, which details the location of hundreds of farms and abattoirs where the group says animals are being exploited.

“The safety of farming families and their children is at risk here. If this activist attack map remains online, I fear someone will be seriously hurt or worse,” Mr Littleproud said on Tuesday.
