Further proof of the rampant and institutionalized violence in animal agribusiness. "Isolated, extreme cases" my foot. This is why the ag gag bills should fail. If not for whistle blowers like this who knows what abuse would go undocumented?

I've seen a lot of comments from people saying they're going to either stop eating pork or go vegetarian or vegan after seeing this. So some good has come from it at least.

Before checking into Vegeterian Diet and lifestyle my husband and I banned pork because of various reasons . I refuse to have pork in our home ETc.

It always boggles my mind when these types of videos come out and omni's are just soo shocked. I really can't honestly believe that people are unaware of how animals are treated when they are raised for meat etc. And even when some people see these videos they still think that it doesn't happen very often.... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":(">

As Iowa considers a bill that would make it illegal to shoot undercover video at factory farms, Mercy for Animals has released stomach turning undercover video taken at an Iowa pig farm that supplies major retailers such as Costco, Safeway and Kroger.<br><br>
She links to an article about it from ABC:<br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>
<div class="quote-block">The images are graphically clear: Small piglets being hurled to a concrete floor; large, fully grown sows gnawing the bars on their tiny cages; pigs with open sores lying untended on the ground; piglets squealing as their tails are cut off without benefit of anesthetic; and workers tossing live piglets back and forth and describing them as 'bouncy.'"<br><br>
[The] report lets us know that some of what we see is "standard industry practice:"<br><br>
For instance, gestation crates are widespread within the pig farming industry. Sows spend most of their lives in a tiny space where they can't lie down or turn around, producing litter after litter of piglets until they die.</div>

Amazingly, Democratic Sen. Tom Rielly, who introduced the Senate bill, said the video released Wednesday "is exactly why we need a bill like this." So he sees horrific abuse, and his response is to cover it up. This pathetic man ought to be locked in a gestation crate for the rest of his worthless life.

He is astoundingly idiotic. And they want "people to report these crimes not record it". Haha, like they're going to do crap if someone reports it. They don't care. At that point it's my word against yours, and no proof to back my claim up. So there in goes the recording which solidifies everything I said, and they can try as they might to explain it out, but that's not gonna work on people with at least half of a brain.
