The Pig

Wishful Thinking


When people think about pigs, they think about the movie "Babe" or a cute little pig like Henry...


...or perhaps a pig like Sugarbear enjoying the pasture grass...


...or perhaps pigs like Oscar and Spanky who are free to wander out in the field to their favorite mud hole.

Reality

(Pig - Factory Farming - 32)  Based upon the size of the dead pig in the aisle, we believe that it was "thumped" to death.  "Thumping" is an industry term for grabbing a "runt" by the hind legs and swinging it up over the farmers head and then with as much force as possible, slamming the back of the pig's head against the floor.
