On Wednesday, I saw the video you're about to see, and I haven't been able to write about it for the past few days, because of the images seared into my mind. It was one of the most horrendous things I have ever seen. If you thought Human Centipede was bad, or maybe even those terrible movies, like Hostel or Saw; this video puts those movies to shame. This is real life folks.
Mercy for Animals, an animal rights group, released footage of some pig abuse going on at a company called, "Iowa Select," an industrial farm that supplies pork to Krogers, Safeway and Costco. In the video you will see workers, snap off tails from little baby piglets and castrate them without any anesthetic. You'll watch as they toss and throw them around like footballs. I mean, the video is the most graphic and disgusting thing you'll ever see. You see abscesses due to infections, and "skin is flayed away from painful-looking open sores, revealing bone, muscle and pus underneath."
I don't even know where to begin with this, but these people need to be held accountable. I understand life has to go on, but I'm sure there are some more humane ways of handling these pigs. Pigs are pigs, I know that, but caring for them as they grow up is important. Proper care can be provided by hiring more people if you have to... it's the economy stupid.
I'm warning you, don't watch this if you have a queasy stomach, and throw-up easily.
