|USDA: Stop Feeding Dead Piglets to Their Mothers!|
Since April 2013, more than 2 million piglets in the U.S. have died to a pig disease called porcine diarrhea virus (PEDV).
Instead of improving conditions for these piglets to prevent the spread of the disease, a hog farm in Kentucky has been grinding the dead piglets into smoothies, which they then feed to sows, possibly the piglets' own mothers.
In addition to this, video footage captured other forms of factory farm cruelty, including gestation crates where filthy and framed conditions encourage the spread of PEDV. Unless more humane alternatives are taken to prevent PEDV, they will continue to grind piglets!
For today's Daily Action, tell the USDA to stop farms from feeding dead piglets to their own mothers!
