High-Speed Slaughter Is Hell for Pigs

Kicked. Beaten. Scalded alive. All in the name of profit for pork giants who want to fatten their pocketbooks by drastically increasing slaughter speed - at the animals' expense.

The USDA's terrible proposal is now open to public comment. Use your voice to stop the high-speed torture of pigs. See the sample text below:

I strongly oppose the Modernization of Swine Slaughter Inspection rule, which endangers animals, consumers, and American workers. Under this dangerous rule, the New Swine Slaughter Inspection System (NSIS) would give slaughter plants free reign to kill at irresponsibly high speeds with severely inadequate oversight. An investigation by Compassion Over Killing of a pilot high-speed slaughter program exposed pigs dragged, kicked, excessively shocked, and improperly stunned by workers who struggled just to keep up -- risking their own safety in the process. I urge you to abandon this cruel and reckless proposal, for the good of pigs and humans.

Submitted comment previously via email from Lady Freethinker and also signed several other petitions from multiple advocacy groups including Farm Sanctuary. I also have made several calls. GO VEGAN. There is no such thing as humane "slaughter" and certainly not at ANY factory farms!
