A new undercover investigation by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals shows the extreme cruelty and suffering pigs endure before being killed for hot dogs, sausage, and bacon. The shocking video footage was taken inside a Southern Quality Meats slaughterhouse in Mississippi, which has been awarded more than six million dollars in taxpayer funds to supply meat to schools in Mississippi.
The video exposes workers sadistically electro-shocking terrified pigs in their stomachs and genitals for no apparent reason. According to the investigator, some of the pigs were tortured like this for up to thirty minutes before being hung upside down and having their throats slit open.
Watch the undercover investigation here:
MFA's own investigations reveal that the lives of pigs and other animals raised and killed for food are filled with misery and deprivation. They are routinely confined in cages barely larger than their own bodies, mutilated without painkillers, and denied proper veterinary care. Sadly, as this recent pig slaughter video shows, their deaths are often equally horrific.
But it doesn't have to be this way. Every time we sit down to eat we can cast a vote against needless cruelty and violence by choosing vegetarian alternatives to meat, milk, and eggs. Visit ChooseVeg.com for helpful tips and cruelty-free recipes.
