Action Alert: Stop Wal Mart’s Abuse of Pigs

When it comes to animal  rights, Wal Mart is worse than McDonald’s. Many food chains such as McDonald’s, Burger King, Wendy’s, and Chipotle no longer buy meat from providers who use gestation crates, Wal Mart still does.

An undercover investigator from Mercy for Animals worked for two months at a farm that supplies pork to Wal Mart, and reported on the horrifying abuses there. Pigs are kept in gestation crates so tiny they can’t move. These intelligent creatures go insane from boredom and discomfort and attempt to bite their way out of these tiny metal cages. Many of them have open wounds and sores on their skin that goes untreated. Can you imagine spending your life that way, only to be led to slaughter when you are finally freed? Watch the video here, and show someone who still eats meat.

But most importantly, you can sign a petition here to protest Wal Mart’s support of cruel gestation crates. Let’s put an end to this cruel practice.
