The Humane Society of the United States has released gruesome undercover footage shot inside a gestation-crate facility that supplies to Tyson – one of the world’s largest meat processors.
The shocking investigation reveals:
Mother pigs confined in tiny metal gestation crates, uable to turn around for nearly their entire lives;
Workers punching and kicking mother pigs and piglets, and whipping piglets around by their hind legs, smashing them into concrete floors, and throwing them high into the air;
Employees throwing piglets’ testicles at each other and feeding them back to the mother pigs for “fun”;
Pregnant pigs suffering from severe rectal and uterine prolapses without proper veterinary treatment;
Dead and decaying piglets – including some who were mummified – littering the facility, including in piles next to mother pigs in crates; and
Dead pigs left to rot in their gestation crates for days. One dead pig was half-buried in grain from an automatic feeder.
