My job is to bring the darkest cruelties against animals out into the light for all to see.

When I found one sow one day last April, she was lying on the ground -- her legs were swollen and covered in deep gashes. She had sores all over her body.  I tried to give her food but she wouldn't eat it. When I touched her legs she recoiled in pain. The people responsible for her care did not even leave her water. But, I caught a few drops of water from a nearby hose and brought my hand to her mouth. All of a sudden, she lifted her head and lapped up the water. With all the strength she had left, she inched her way toward water -- for what might have been her last drink.
It pains me to think about how she came to be in this condition. She was just a number to the people running this facility, a unit that wasn't producing.  There were many -- too many -- other horrors at this facility. Workers punching pregnant mother pigs, drop-kicking piglets like soccer balls and smashing them into concrete floors.

See this sow's story:  http://action.humanesociety.org/site/R?i=7mzHolP8TTFIxa3IskNkNQ

Watch this mother pig's story and help animals like her:
Watch another story of one mother pig at a factory farm in Wyoming.

My job is to document these abuses for one reason: to expose them. And it's working. As a result of this investigation, seven workers at this factory farm pleaded guilty or were convicted of animal cruelty. And, we've worked with more than 60 major companies -- including McDonald's, Burger King, Costco, and Target -- to announce that they will stop using small, metal cages in which breeding sows are confined for almost their entire lives. This is tremendous progress, but there's still so much work to be done.

Together we will confront cruelty wherever it exists, taking on the individuals and industries that profit from animal suffering -- from people who mistreat dogs in puppy mills, to those who club baby seals to death in the name of fashion, to corporations that abuse animals in factory farms. Thank you for everything you do for animals.

Sincerely,

Undercover Investigator
