Widespread abuse alleged at two pig farms

Aiming to pressure two of the largest U.S. producers of pork, one of them a Walmart* supplier, into changing how they treat pigs, the Humane Society of the United States on Tuesday said it had staged undercover operations that revealed atrocious conditions.

The group said its undercover operatives “found workers cutting piglets testicles and tails off with no painkiller, injured piglets with their legs duct taped to their bodies, gestation crates overflowing with feces and urine, and employees hitting pigs’ genitals to force them to move from one crate to another.”
