Video of the Day – Smithfield Foods undercover video

The Humane Society of the United States released this video – from inside a facility run by a subsidiary of Smithfield Foods – on December 15. It documents the horrible and extremely inhumane conditions female pigs endure in gestation crates.

*** WARNING – Some scenes in this footage are very difficult to watch and contain images of injured pigs.

This isn’t the way it used to be. The factory farms that use methods such as this have actually taken the care of farm animals to a horrible level it wasn’t many years ago. One would think an advanced society would be making progress, but it’s not the case with factory farming.
