It isnít widely known that pigs are subjected to painful and distressing experiments in medical research.

Our photo of the month reveals how this looks: the restraint, the impersonal number scrawled on this pigís forehead in pen. She hangs, suspended and helpless.

Most vital here is the eye contact. She seems to be looking up at a person, perhaps wondering what is next.

This is one of the 204 images in our book HIDDEN: Animals in the Anthropocene.
