Ohio Hog Farm in the news

The non-profit group, Humane Farming Association, released an undercover video that shocked TV viewers in Ohio by showing the “standard practices” in an Ohio hog farm.

According to a former employee who witnessed these atrocities, pigs at Wiles Farm are ineffectively shot and left alive, beaten to death with hammers, have their heads slammed into walls and floors multiple times, and sows are strung up by their neck and slowly suffocated.

Steve Kaufman, President of Vegetarian Advocates and CVA chair said, "I think what's shocking is the callousness and disregard for the animals, throwing the animals and strangling the animals by the rope for example."

Congressman Dennis Kucinich is asking those who want to help to contact him and plans to include their names on a list of Americans calling for tougher legislation that regulates that treatment of farm animals.

As of today, there are no Federal laws regarding the treatment of animals on farms.
