Christian Vegetarian Association Presents:
Take Heart!

This Week's Video

The Humane Society of the United States released shocking undercover video footage from its recent investigation at a Virginia pig factory farm owned by a subsidiary of Smithfield Foods, the world's largest pork producer.

The video shows disturbing cruelty such as extreme confinement in "gestation crates", untreated injuries and open pressure sores that developed from their merciless confinement, and pigs seen engaging in disturbed behaviors, such as repeated bar biting, indicating severe distress. Some had even bitten so hard and frequently that blood from their mouths coated the fronts of their crates.

Piglets are taken from their mothers when they are as young as 10 days old and packed into overcrowded pens after having their tails cut off, their teeth clipped and their testicles ripped out of their bodies without any painkillers.

After five or six months of this torture they are loaded onto transport trucks and shipped to slaughter.
