Pink Pig Poop. Say What?

It’s no secret that because of factory farms, there’s too much poop polluting our planet. But did you know a lot of factory farms that raise pigs have pink poop lagoons around them? “Why the F are they pink?!” Brace yourselves—the answer is pretty foul.

On pig farms, the floors are slatted to allow excrement to fall into a pit under the pens, so all of the drugs administered to the pigs exit their bodies through poop and into these pits. But many other things wind up in these pits:

  • afterbirths
  • piglets that have been accidentally crushed by their mothers
  • broken bottles of insecticide
  • antibiotic syringes
  • stillborn pigs
  • even old batteries

These pits get drained into large poop ponds—which are pink. And I mean BRIGHT, Pepto-Bismol pink. See a pic for yourself here.

People have died after falling into these toxic poop ponds—and they’re so venomous that even the people who tried to save them died as a result. As if it isn’t bad enough that they even exist, when Mother Nature strikes, these lagoons overflow, spreading the deadly pink goop all over its surrounding areas. Here’s a pic of a poop pond, post-hurricane flooding.

Now I’m not one to be regularly examining pig poop, but shouldn’t their poop be … I don’t know … NOT pink? And in this day and age, shouldn’t people know better than to pollute the earth with pink lagoons of toxic death just because they like the taste of ham? And for anyone reading this that still eats pork, whatever harsh chemicals that weren’t excreted into the poop pond stay in the flesh of these poor pigs. Bacon, anyone?

 Be the change,
– Helena

    This is what the world has become not only because of technology, but also because of fast food joints. We are becoming pigs ourselves, we just eat eat eat at any expense. People are starting to not care what is in their food or how it effects their bodies, they just care about how fast they can get their food. Technology is also teaching us that we need to have the best of the best, and always improve to bigger and better. Well news flash world! There is not going to be anything ‘bigger’ or ‘better’ if we keep living the way we do. Soon enough it will not be just these nasty pig shit floods; but it will be floods of all sorts of waste and chemicals. To make matters worse, we will all be so fucking fat in this world that we won’t be able to do anything but be killed by our own creations. This kind of stuff needs to be taken seriously and stopped… IMMEDIATELY!

    Now I’m not condoning the slaughter of pigs or anything, but I know a few upstate pig farms that are a lot cleaner than this, as in no pink poop. So it’s not all suppliers, which is good, because if every farm was exactly like this, we’d have a problem.
    Not that this isn’t one already.

    It’s absolutely disgusting, and I can’t see how SOMEONE doesn’t do something to stop this. I don’t know who – the government, the FDA, the president – but some higher power in this country needs to put down the greasy frying pan and take a wake up call. Or maybe “The Jungle” needs a sequel.
