Hell on Wheels

A new undercover investigation by Mercy for Animals Canada reveals atrocious cruelty to pigs being transported to slaughter. The following are some of the abuses pigs routinely suffer on their way to the slaughterhouse.

  • Pigs to sick or injured to even stand being painfully shocked with electric prods, kicked, beaten and violently rammed with heavy gates.
  • Workers using bolt cutters to cut through the sensitive tusks of male pugs without painkillers.
  •  Frightened animals transported hundreds of kilometers in sweltering heat, suffering from heat stress and dehydration.
  •  Sick and injured animals left to suffer without proper veterinary care in plain view of government inspectors.

The cruelty, fear, pain, terror and death are not going to end unless people stop supporting this industry. Our Christian core values: mercy, compassion, love and justice should motivate us to choose compassion by consuming plant-based foods.
