Pig Farm Without Empathy

It’s stories like this one that inspired me to start Life Is Fare in the first place. I’m warning you, this video is disturbing. It’s another undercover investigation by the Humane Society of the United States and this time the victims are pigs from Wyoming Premium Farms in Wheatland, Wyoming.

It’s not just disturbing that people treat animals this way and that the majority of consumers who eat the meat from these animals don’t realize that stress creates a poor quality product. What’s also disturbing is that people are acting this way in the first place. Any employer who creates conditions that drive their employees to commit violence should be shut down. And if those people were disturbed to begin with, they shouldn’t have been hired. They need help.

While I believe most of the human race is empathic toward people and animals, there is a small percentage that has no conscience or empathy. Often these people end up in leadership roles or positions of power. Exactly where they don’t belong.

This video has nothing to do with the carnivore-vegetarian debate. It’s about the golden rule. Please stop supporting industrialized farming. Remember, you are what you eat.
