The Relentless Abuse to Pigs

This excerpt from Mother Jones contributing writer Ted Genoways' new book, The Chain: Farm, Factory, and the Fate of Our Food exposes the unimaginable cruelty that pigs undergo in factory farms and slaughterhouses throughout the U.S. Some of the cases are very disturbing and sadly too common.

ďIn one shot, a supervisor was shown beating a sow relentlessly on the back. In another, workers turned electric prods on a crippled sow and kicked pregnant sows repeatedly in the belly. A close-up showed a distressed sow knocked out, her face royal blue from the Prima Tech marking dye sprayed into her nostrils by a worker who said he was trying "to get her high."

In one of the most disturbing sequences, a worker demonstrated the method for euthanizing underweight piglets: taking them by the hind legs and smashing their skulls against the concrete floor.

Fellow workers whooped and laughed as he tossed the bloodied and twitching bodies into a giant bin.Ē

Godís farmed animals are exploited and killed relentlessly while most people choose to ignore it and continue to support this injustice with their animal-product laden meals. Animals do have a voice but people choose to be deaf to their screams. Itís imperative that everyone recognizes that abusing and killing Godís animals hurts humanity deeply. We become apathetic to the suffering of animals and humans as well.
