This video of piglets being tossed around like footballs and caged and injured pigs with open wounds makes me spitting mad. There is no way to justify this sort of treatment.
And check out this statement by the president of the American Association of Swine Veterinarians, Dr. Butch Baker,
“They [Mercy For Animals -the maker of the video.] would like to put all those people (farmers) out of business and out of work," Baker told Fox News. "I have no patience for anyone who abuses animals or no tolerance and I don’t think anyone should, but these films ... really are an attack on the rural lifestyle of America."
While it is undoubtedly true that Mercy For Animals wants to put the meat business out of business, that does not mean they are wrong in pointing out infuriatingly cruel animal husbandry practices. Put another way, if what we see in this video is typical of what goes on at big farms like this -and I believe it is- then these people should be out of business.
