A total of 24 pig producers are reporting an unknown group of activists who have entered nearly 30 farms in the last two years to take photos and record video material. 

The pig producers have become aware of the incidents through a letter from Norwegian Broadcasting (NRK), newspaper Nationen writes.

In the letter to the farmers, NRK states that parts of the documentation could be used in news pieces and articles that look at the status of the pig industry a year and a half after the Brennpunkt documentary “Pig industry secrets,” which showed violations of laws and regulations in pig houses and slaughterhouses.

The activists are said to have entered at least 28 different farms across the country. A total of 24 of the farmers report what they believe are criminal offenses to the Public Prosecutor.
