just a random video i found (warning extremely GRAPHIC)

"A new Mercy For Animals undercover investigation provides a shocking look into one of the nation's largest pork producers -- Iowa Select Farms in Kamrar, Iowa. At this factory farm, mother sows and their piglets are forced to suffer brutal abuse and lives of unrelenting confinement and misery."
(video is at the bottom of the page)

Between April and June of 2011, an MFA investigator documented:

- Mother sows confined to barren metal crates barely larger than their own bodies -- unable to turn around or lie down comfortably for nearly their entire lives

- Workers ripping out the testicles of conscious piglets without the use of painkillers

- Piglets suffering with herniated intestines, due to botched castration

- Conscious piglets having their tails painfully sliced into and yanked off with dull clippers

- Large, open, pus-filled wounds and pressure sores

- Sick and injured pigs left to languish and slowly die without proper veterinary care

- Mother pigs -- physically taxed from constant birthing -- suffering from distended, inflamed, bleeding, and usually fatal uterine prolapses

- Management training workers to throw piglets across the room -- comparing it to a "roller coaster ride"

Warning this animal mistreatment video is extremely graphic!
This is a video of animal torture (Specifically piglets) in a factory. 


  1. Holy shit, that's goddamn awful. I mean, seriously, throwing little piglets around, saying it's a roller coaster ride? The fuck?
    I mean just look at the whole mess there, chances are the meat isn't in all that good condition either. Cruelty towards the animals can easily backfire into diseases and nasty bacteria in your meat.

  2. i cant watch those videos, i get too sad :(
