Organic Farms: Just As Cruel
When Dutch animal rights group Ongehoord (“Unheard” in English) secretly filmed 26 pig farms in the Netherlands, it found that cruelty was just as prevalent on organic farms—and on those that labeled their meat with the misleading “Better Life” stamp from the Dutch SPCA—as it was on factory farms.
On organic farms all over the world—including in the U.S.—pigs are crammed into feces-strewn pens, mutilated without being given any painkillers, and sent to slaughter in the same filthy slaughterhouses as factory-farmed pigs. However, the meat can still be called “organic” as long as the pigs were given organic feed and weren’t drugged.
Don’t be misled by deceptive marketing.
The only meats that are truly cruelty-free are the delicious faux varieties!
