WARNING: Graphic Pig Farm Video

Brace yourselves, because this is a tough one …

Here at PETA, we’re used to undercover investigators documenting the gruesome final moments that animals face in slaughterhouses. Surely this suffering alone is reason enough not to want to eat them.

The latest undercover investigation from our friends in Mercy for Animals takes a look at the cruelty animals—in this case, pigs—suffer before their throats are slit. The investigator documented workers hurling baby pigs and slamming them into transport carts; picking piglets up by their ears and tails; cutting off the animals’ tails with pliers, and ripping off their testicles with bare hands and without painkillers (the sound of screaming piglets in the video made my skin crawl). Their squealing mothers are shown scrambling to escape workers who slam spiked mallets into the animals’ sides.

This is a brutal video to watch, but I ask that you witness for yourself what happens behind the scenes—because these animals need your voices more than ever.

Once you’ve watched the video, please take the time to comment with the one word that you would use to describe what you saw.

I’m going to go with “despicable.”

    Omfg!!!!!!!!!!! I am crying! Why can’t people see animals aren’t meant to be eaten?! I belive Adam and Eve were vegetarian/vegan; They had a beautiful garden with vegetables and fruit. The animals were thier freinds. That’s how it should be.

    Hey!!!
    How can people be so crual to animals.
    It makes me both sad and angry in the same time.
    They dont treat the pigs like living animals.
    No respekt for life at all.

    I just want to let them out. To be happy pigs.
    We have to fight for our best friends animals rights everybody, with our eyes wide open.

I want to travel a ton one day, learn German, drive and lifeguard, and be an elementary school art teacher.

I write in a diary everyday. I hate candy corn. I have two cactus plants. I have Facebook, Snapchat, Tumblr and Instagram, so HMU if you want my usernames. I believe loosely in karma, fate, kismet, déjà vu, reincarnation, dreams, destiny & fate. I love for stores: Etsy, Hot Topic, Francesca's, & Claire’s. People say I look like Brenton Thwaites.
