Matthew Prescott, director of food policy for The Humane
Society of the United States, writes about the blatant actions by the
pork industry that result in consumers being deceived and remaining in

Industry does its best to keep consumers in the dark.
industry is one of the cruelest, most deceiving industries in the
world. What they do to pigs is really unspeakable and unimaginable.
Sadly, many people still support this industry allowing them to
continue lying to people, destroying the environment and torturing
God’s animals. Nothing is going to change unless consumers choose
compassion over taste and convenience.

Video: Butterball Undercover Investigation
Thanks to a new
investigation by Mercy For Animals, the company “Butterball”, which
responsible for 20 percent of the 252 million turkeys raised for food
in the United States, has once again been brought to light due to
egregious cruelty to animals such as: baby birds being callously
tossed into a macerating machine to be ground up alive; workers
roughly throwing and dropping newborn animals with no regard for their
welfare; newly hatched birds regularly getting stuck in and mangled by
factory machinery; and turkeys having their sensitive toes and beaks
cut or burned off without any painkillers.
