Sylvia Hook, a farmer at Sandilands Farm, said that the activists caused damage to the farm and distress to animals, even accusing them of causing the death of two piglets. Hook said in an interview with Lincolnshire Live that fifty activists piled into a farrowing house, where sows immediately began jumping up and down and two piglets were squished to death. Hook added that there were also two other piglets injured.

Hook accused activists of picking piglets up and trying to cuddle them, then returning them to wrong pens. She claims that the protest went on for such a long time that they could not continue with their scheduled caring for the animals, including feeding them on time.

Meat the Victims UK denied that their activists caused Sandilands Farm animals any stress or that they were responsible for the death and or injury of any piglets.
