Poignant Pigs

On our news this morning, came a story that I could not wait to share with all of you.

It could not wait until ” Good News”  Sunday, so now, I must find,  hopefully,  another one for that day!

This story concerns a video of extreme animal abuse,  that became a public video and exposed a company and their supplier for the horrific  treatment of animals.

Tyson Foods really had no choice, once they had been exposed and the supplier caught in this heinous behavior, but to end their relationship with them.

Personally, I believe that if they had not been caught  “on film,”  they more than likely would still be doing business with them.

As the story explained, Tyson Foods has  “dropped”  an Oklahoma Supplier for extreme cruelty to the pigs it slaughters.

There is something so insane about that sentence.

Anyway……

The heroes in this story are a group called Mercy For Animals.

Here is a link to their web site, but please be forewarned some places on the site are quite gruesome:
Mercy For Animals

But how on Earth can we stop this horror for animals, if people don’t know what is being done?

Only go to their site,  if you can bear seeing animals suffering horribly and avoid the Walmart section.

Here is my point for bringing this to your attention.

If you do still eat meat, do you have any idea what that very process and decision has on millions of animals all over the world?

You must understand that huge companies like Tyson and Walmart have only one thing in mind when they do business and it is MONEY!

All that they care about is the bottom line, who will do it the cheapest.

The details are none of their concern, until like now, when they are caught.

Thank God for this group and may I add, that they are very brave, for capturing this on film because otherwise, the very high-priced lawyers for these companies could deny, deny, deny, in court and WIN!

There was another very strongly warned video that came up during my search, but I was afraid to click on it and did not wish to share it with you, what is already here, is probably more than many of you will ever want to see or know.

Although the story explains the reason for Tyson’s decision, which I might add was not enough, it could have, should have been, much more detailed and had so much more about this behavior and how wide-spread it is in the Food Industry!

Every decent, moral, conscionable company within the vital Food Industry, who learns of this kind of behavior, or treatment, should with no hesitation,  rid themselves of the demons that now purvey it.

One last thought, I have always loved all pigs, and would have them in our yard, if legally allowed~

An Update………

This was just shared with me,   it will break your heart, it broke mine:

We must stop this cruel cycle.  Please make your feelings known!

      • I don’t know what to do either. On the one hand, I did stop eating almost all flesh foods years ago after seeing a PETA video done by Paul McCartney on slaughtering cows and pigs. But the ones who want to eat meat, will and will just not watch such a video or have a negative reaction. It hurts me to see such a video but I want to know about what goes on with animals. Those who don’t care, at the very least, will not watch, or worse, watch and make light or deny. I will not send this video to friends I know will cry. So I have no answer either.

  1. Mercy for Animals is an amazing group of people doing some very hard yet necessary work. It’s only because they are willing to go into these places that we can expose the world to the cruelty of animal agriculture. They have my utmost respect.

  2. Thank you for posting this. Good for Mercy for Animals, and I hope they are able to keep up the good work. I have not watched the video, I don’t think I could. I have already seen enough of the vile treatment of pigs. Such gentle and intelligent creatures. It’s time the whole world woke up to the abuse they receive globally.

    • Thank you so much for your compassion.
      Animals suffer more than many will ever know at the hands of cowards.
      It is on us to stop it.
      Never stop speaking out for them.
      They have no voice but ours.
      Speak loudly!

      • Absolutely right! There are many of us who speak out, and we are heard, and we do make a difference. And, everyday our voices get louder, the word spreads further and further and more are listening. One day our individual voices will reach such a pitch, they will merge as one, and no-one will be able to ignore what we are saying. The difference we make then, will be considerable.

        But, there is such a long, long way to go, and, as you say, we must never stop shouting until we get there. The animals need our voices.

        Thank you, too, for all you do, my friend, and all the sad and bad things you bring to everyone’s attention. ~ Amelia 🙂

  3. Couldn’t watch — know already and have plenty of nightmares. I signed the petition and great thanks and blessings to Mercy for Animals. I love pigs so much. I am an Earth Pig, astrologically speaking. Please keep up this vital and important work that enables humans to evolve. You have all my deepest respect.

    • I feel the same.
      It nearly kills me some days to learn of another new horror committed by Humans on innocent animals.
      If not for groups like Mercy, their evil would all be kept secret.
      Thank God for them.
      May a thousand more like them be born every day.

  4. I found that clip a couple of weeks ago, and posted it on my facebook for everyone to see. As a person whose family raised pastured pigs and friends who raise pastured pigs, it is unbelievable, pigs are beautiful and smart animals and should never be treated that way. It is completely, utterly shocking. NO ONE is saving any money buying this meat at Walmart. It will make people sick. All the stress hormones from those living conditions, not to mention inflammation from GMO processed pig feeds can only contribute to toxic health. Many of these pigs, if not all of them, have cancer at slaughter. 😦 Bless you for spreading this around, bless you for your work!

    • I spent many happy summers on my Uncle’s farm in Southern Indiana.
      The pigs and the chickens were my job to care for every morning.
      I loved it and them.
      When I see these unspeakable things done to them and all animals,
      it only drives me harder to keep exposing these monsters.
      Bless all of those who love the animals and will not allow this kind of horror to continue unabated.

  5. After watching those type videos many years ago is the reason I stopped eating meat. I never much liked it as a child anyway, so I wasn’t really giving up much. Thank god for organizations like Mercy for Animals, and thanks, as always, for keeping us informed.

      • The video literally made me sick. I cannot ever imagine treating any living creature like that. I don’t eat pork, but if I did, that video would be enough to make me think twice next time I wanted to buy it. t makes me wonder what those men treat their family like since they have such cold hearts. I am so glad for the brave soul who filmed that and shared it so we could spread the word. Thank you for visiting my blog and for the follow.
