THE BIGGEST WELFARE SCANDAL IN MODERN FARMING?

“Every time you open the door to one of these farms, you tell yourself: ‘it will be better than the last. They can’t all be ignoring the law, they can’t all be inflicting such misery.’ But then you see the pigs, and realise the scale of the suffering. It breaks your heart.”

Absolutely shocking that kenny, wish I hadn't watched it.

Of course the pork products in the supermarkets say from EU pork, so people think it's ok. The tiny percentage that bother to look that is.

UK pork sadly includes Ireland who are also offenders. Shame on them all.

Signed but skipped the video...like many others I just can't watch animals being made to suffer at the hands of ignorant neanderthals...they should slip and fall in one of the pens and knock themselves out...the pigs would do the rest.

I worked briefly on a farm that had pigs when I left school. If they'ed have been kept that many to a pen, I'd have assisted their escape! Just because they are gonna' end up as pork chops doesn't mean their time on earth has to be spent suffering. Bastards.

President Harry Truman said, "No man should be allowed to be president who does not understand hogs."

When in their natural surroundings—not on factory farms—pigs are social, playful, protective animals who bond with each other, make nests, relax in the sun, and cool off in the mud. Pigs are known to dream, recognize their own names, learn "tricks" like sitting for a treat, and lead social lives of a complexity previously observed only in primates. Many pigs even sleep in ‘pig piles,’ much like dogs. Some love to cuddle and others prefer space.

People who run animal sanctuaries that include pigs note that they are more similar to humans than you would guess. Like humans, pigs enjoy listening to music, playing with soccer balls, and getting massages. Pigs can even play video games!

oh here goes, I thought long and hard about posting this as I know I will probably crucified for saying this, but to be honest, I was expecting much worse from that video, presumably they have edited in the worst footage that they could find , but if that is the worst footage they can come up with after visiting all those farms in all those countries then I don't think the problem is that bad!
Yes, some of those animals look sick, but any farm keeping a couple of thousand animals in a free range field will have some sick animals, it happens. Most of the animals did not look overly distressed to me.. Yes a little crowded in some of those pens, but you don't know how long they have been there or if indeed they are that bothered... Its not just big business or the supermarkets that do this, if you go to rural parts of any country, there will be farmers who will have a single pig in a pig sty covered in sh!t that will never see another pig or roam free in a field. I appreciate it is hard to watch but we, humans, are animals after all, and despite us thinking we a not part of the natural world, we absolutely are. Many animals, in fact most animals, inflict pain and cruelty onto their fellow animals in order to survive, I wish it wasn't that way, but the fact remains that it IS a cruel world we live in and always has been, always will be. Its not your fault, you don't have to feel guilty about it, but if you want make a donation to that website, write a letter or stop eating meat to ease you concious then by all means do it, whatever gets you through the night...

now what do you propose we can do about this sort of cruelty? and not a human in sight apart from the cameraman!

the world is a horrible place if you choose to see it that way, or you can just accept the natural order of things, including global warming and be totally awestruck by how life on earth has evolved and will continue to evolve long after humans have been wiped from their brief moment of dominance, just about every animal that has ever lived has been eaten by another animal, quite often the feast begins before death has occurred. Farmed animals will at least be spared that nightmare, as will hopefully you.... 

right, I'm off to hide behind the sofa, I appreciate most people don't think like me... I am a good guy, honestly... Blush
