Noted, had signed this earlier...I will not watch the video, I can't watch heartless scum bags, abusing these Animals...I never, ever shop at Wal-Mart, and this is just another reason to add to the list of why I don't set foot in a Wal-Mart...I just wish someday, the scum bags abusing these poor Pigs, get a taste of their own medicine...It's the least they deserve...Karma is a bitch, and I hope they meet the bitch soon...

I do not swallow cruelty! Why we should all become vegetarian & vegans. As long as the demand is there for animal flesh for people to consume there will be cruelty to animals that do not belong in factory farm. It is a choice as there is enough other foods that have protein. I also take "spirulina" which is loaded with what we need when we are not eating animal flesh. Many nuts & seeds have protein. We can all be kind to animals, they were meant to live the life God put them here for, not for being a meal to humans. Thanks Kim.

if we devalue anything we stand to lose everything
as long as any being lives in fear, hate, exploitation and death at the hands of man so shall all men live under this same threat, don't fool yourself no one is free as long as another is oppressed. withdraw your consent for as long as we agree to the small things we have agreed to the big ones, the pebble seems so small but its effects are far reaching
protect life, prosecute those that seek to destroy our shared home and our fellow beings
life has value beyond measure
Peace and Love

Hideous horrid cruelty in the name of money, again! Pigs are probably smarter than humans....the terror and agony they endure is beyond comprehension. This MUST stop----all over the world---such disregard for our animal brothers and sisters---their fear and agony and pain! We are in danger of becoming a species not worthy of saving...

I recently viewed a video about the last day of a pig's life, and I can't bring myself to view another. I couldn't believe the cruelty and indifference displayed by the people who led the pigs to slaughter. What kind of person is able to inflict such pain and suffering on an innocent animal? My best guess would be "the worst kind of people," but I think it goes beyond that.

Gladly signed and noted!

Any words that I could think of at this very moment to express my feelings would simply fall short of the emotions that have overcome me. The world is still steeped in the dark ages, still savage, let nobody be fooled by the age of technology. What should we do with technology when our psyche is ailing? There is nothing quite as big as compassion. There is nothing quite as awesome as the intelligence that surrounds us in our universe and the miracle of being. The miracle of life of all species. I am deeply saddened by human behaviour.

Thanks to the people who have commented on this page, I have regained a little faith in a better world to come.

Thanks Gina C. for reminding everyone about the Susan Komen breast cancer clicks....they DO support labs and people who experiment on animals---and when there are great research labs out there who do not, why are we on care 2 supporting them? Why is this on our list for actions? I've never given them a click, or a dime after I found out that bit of info. last year. And I had my suspicions about raising a 'farm animal humanely' too..........if it's not a wool sheep destined for some 'aware' country....I won't do that either!

Note to Gina Caracci - Stopped giving credit to raising a farm animal humanly a long time ago. Feel we are being duped/lied to by this one. Did not know about the breast cancer clicks. Will have to stop those! MY clicks are for GOOD! Kudos to you for sharing!!

Thanks Kim O for this important piece of information!!

You're damned right I signed it! And sent it around my Facebook community! I love pigs...they are SO smart! Pigs deserve a great life...they don't just feel pain, stress, and fear...they are thinking animals with problem solving skills! Pigs have even saved the lives of their human companions! I just can't wrap my head around the thought of EATING pork, and to be cruel to the pig on top of eating it? Ugh!

The horrors of factory farming convinced me years ago to stop eating meat. Even though I still buy organic free range eggs and grass fed dairy products, I'm not convinced these animals are treated humanely either.

This story gives me one more reason to avoid shopping at Walmart. Their stores are unpleasant for a myriad of reasons.

I'm so sick and tired of this abuse all for greed. Unbeknownst to so many, we are seen as just commodities by the elite just as the animals are. Maybe people should learn more of history, of how many countries were bombed or had concentration camps just for the elite to make more money. This is no different - cruelty and murder for a buck. Fossils of ancient men have been found in 2008 or 2009 which showed that these ancient humans had teeth of those who eat nuts and berries - not of those who eat meat. Think. Where did the idea that we need to kill animals for food come from in the first place. When people give the message (and even participate n by way of perpetuating) that it is okay to treat other living things as commodities are unknowingly giving the same message to the greedy elite (the real rulers of the world) that it is okay to also treat us as commodities.

These animals have done NOTHING and it breaks my heart that they never will get to have anyone show them any compassion nor be able to walk outside and smell fresh air and sunshine...

I am just so sick of people being this way because they can. I will never be back Walmart.

Noted, Signed & Shared! Everyone should boycott Walmart not only for showing such outright callousness to animal cruelty by continuing to buy pork from this supplier who is committing such egregious cruelty to pigs but because Walmart also does not its pay its employees an adequate wage and hires mostly part-time employees so that it doesn't have to offer any employee healthcare or benefits and then uses our tax dollars to subsidize its exploitive policies!
