Compassion Over Killing Video Exposes Iowa Gestation Crate Cruelties

Compassion Over Killing just released a new undercover investigation of a pig breeding facility in Iowa, a state where corrupt lawmakers—surprise, surprise—are seeking to ban exactly these sorts of undercover videos.

Given McDonald’s announcement on Monday that the company wants to phase out gestation crates, this investigation couldn’t be coming at a more opportune time. If this video gets significant exposure, the pork industry will be facing unprecedented pressure to ban gestation crates.

There’s plenty of systematic cruelty and abject misery on display here. Hormel, which sources some of its pork from pigs bred at this facility, has a lot of explaining to do. Link.
