Very sad to say, but the poor pigs that died were probably more fortunate than the ones that lived--hideous treatment and brutal, cruel slaughter was all that awaited them.

Noted. I am a vegetarian - can't even think about how these poor animals suffer before they end up on someone's dinner plate.

Factory Farms MUST BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE. They must provide HUMANE treatment for the animals in their car OR SHUTDOWN.

I went vegetarian 39 years ago. Why? -Take a wild guess!

this is why I'm vegan. I couldn't say I loved animals and then eat them or allow this suffering. I'm also a Christian and the Bible says several times, that we cannot eat hogs, because they are dirty to us.
