Watch: It's Time For Walmart To Stop the Torture of Pigs

4 years ago by mercyforanimals

Imagine spending years crammed in a barren metal crate so small you can't even around. Imagine having nothing to lie on but cold concrete, night after night, for your entire life. We don't even treat prisoners this way, but Walmart continues to condone this type of cruel treatment of innocent pigs in its pork supply chain.

Pork sold at Walmart comes from factory farms where mother pigs are locked inside gestation crates. In these tiny, narrow crates, mother pigs are denied everything that comes naturally to them. They will never see the sun, breathe fresh air, feel the grass beneath their feet, or do anything that makes life even remotely worth living.

Because they are so smart -- perhaps even smarter even than cats and dogs -- pigs often go insane from the stress, abuse, and lack of stimulation. Some will bite the bars of their cage until their teeth shatter. Others lie depressed and motionless on the ground all day, their intelligent, social minds broken by the misery of confinement.

This is torture. And it has to stop. Visit to take action now.
