Remember PETA’s investigation into a Hormel supplier? Let me refresh your memory.


A worker slammed these piglets’ heads against the floor and left them to die in a bin.

A PETA undercover investigator found …

  • A supervisor shoved a cane into a sow’s vagina, struck her on the back about 17 times, and then struck another sow.
  • Multiple pigs were beaten with metal gate rods, and lacerations were found on more than 30 sows, which is probably evidence of more abuse.
  • A worker hit a young pig in the face four times with the edge of a herding board, and investigators witnessed dozens of similar incidents involving this worker and 11 other workers.
  • Two men, including a supervisor, were witnessed jabbing clothespins into pigs’ eyes and faces. A supervisor also poked two animals in the eyes with his fingers.
  • A supervisor kicked a young pig in the face, abdomen, and genitals to make her move and told PETA’s investigator, “You gotta beat on the bitch. Make her cry.”
  • A worker who weighed an estimated 315 lbs. punched a sow on the back three times and said that he sat on a sow’s head.

As a result, twenty two charges of livestock neglect and abuse were filed against six now former employees of the Hormel supplier. All admitted guilt to the charges.

Iowa is now considering legislation (HF 589) that could subject whistleblowers to criminal prosecution for their efforts to expose animal abuse on factory farms. Frighteningly, HF 589 has passed the Iowa House and is now pending in the Senate. This legislation is a desperate attempt by agriculture-industry giants to prevent consumers from learning the truth about how animals on factory farms live and die, and we need your help once more to stop it.

DON’T LET THEM HIDE THE TRUTH.

TAKE ACTION NOW!

Stay loud!
-Rachel

    USA = Freedom = Choices = Opinions
    Everyone has a choice to eat meat or not eat meat. Everyone has a choice in the USA!!! So MEATEATERS should make a choice and join forces and demand humane slaughter!!! I don’t want to eat a contaminated carrot!!! And I hope the MEATEATER does not want to eat contaminated meat!!!! Lets clean up this universe!

    I cannot understand how they can actually earn a pay check doing this. I guarantee they will certainly be reminded when the judgement day comes. May God have mercy on their Souls.

    God’s creatures are not to be treated in this way let alone being a human being.

    This makes me absolutely sick to my stomach; not just because there are no laws against this kind of thing, but because it’s not just Iowa, this kind of mistreatment is universal. Everyone that eats meat or animals products is paying for this, and it is disgusting. It makes me not want to speak to any of my meat eating freinds, because I just feel as though there must be something wrong with them if they’re happy to support this.
