Nathan Runkle, founder and Executive Director of the animal
Animals, explains why Walmart’s cheap cost of pork comes with a
very high price: egregious acts of cruelty. Numerous undercover
videos at pig factory farms have shown the systematic, standard
cruelty inflicted on these animals.
Aside from piglets being slammed headfirst into the ground,
workers cutting off piglets' tails and testicles without
painkillers, and animals suffering from bloody open wounds, one of
the most abusive practices by the pig industry that Walmart still
supports is cramming pigs into gestation crates where they can
barely move, certainly not turn around or lie down comfortably, and
never exercise any of their instincts and needs.
Please visit The High Cost of Walmart's Cheap Pork:
Treating pigs without any compassion or mercy is certainly making
a mockery of God’s love for them. Gestation crates have no place in
a civilized society. Christians, stewards of God’s Creations, are
called to expose victimization and to do our best to stop it. It’s
clear that farmed animals are brutally victimized by the animal
agriculture industry and that unless we take a stand and stop
consuming their products, God’s animals will continue to suffer for
simply taste and profit.
