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.

Video taken on a farm belonging to a supposed advocate of humane housing for pigs shows baby pigs left dying, a sick sow left unattended while suffering a miscarriage, a struggling pig who was unable to stand, and pigs as they cannibalize sick cratemates. Ongehoord says that its investigation proves that all types of farmers “create a false picture of the pig industry” and that there is still no such thing as “humane meat.”

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!

    I can’t read Dutch but you can still hear the same cries from these poor little defenseless animals. I cried for them, and I hate the so-called humans that do this all over the world! Please don’t eat pig meat – you can see what they go through all over the world!

    Just stop eating meat!!! If a product is not being bought, why produce it! I am so sick of people that whine about animal cruelty but still eat animals!! This makes no sense! This statement is for meat eaters only!

    Slaughtering animals for food is primitive and barbaric in todays society.

    Ban meat production, believe me, not only would animals thank you, but our eco-system would thank you!!

    It is extremely heartbreaking to see innocent pigs being treated like that, anywhere in the world. I cannot believe that some farmers would be that cruel to allow this to happen.

    I wish killing any type of animal was against the law! It drives me crazy how fake thus countries are with all their churches…and for what?!?!?! What are those churches teaching people?! “Oh…uh be good to other people…and uh fuck everything else! Now feed you and your childrens faces with a bunch of meat and dairy and not care about other God’s creatures because in reality we are just a bunch of fake asses”.

    Thank you for sharing this information. I did not know this and always told my friends to buy organic; thinking that the treatment towards the animals were humane. Do you have any information regarding Halal meat and the treatment of animals?

    Man’s lust for the dollar is more sickening by the day. The fraud, corruption & inhumane practices that go with it really highlight – you can’t believe any of them.

    this made me cry. How can people treat animals this way? It’s just wrong. This all gets me so angry because the government etc. know it’s going on, yet they do nothing at all to prevent it.
    I’m so glad that there’s an organisation such as PETA that understands how I feel. Thank you 🙂

      You are correct; it is horrible what they do to animals. They are living creatures with a purpose and deserve to live peaceful torture-free life.

      This is why the essential nature of capitalism is wrong. It allows torture of animals and humans because a profit is gained. When profit is of more value than a life, these horrific things occur.
