When Pigs Cry
A Viva! investigation reveals most pigs are
crammed in disease-ridden, indoor units where they live in
their own filth. A cocktail of drugs keeps them alive and
forces fast growth.
The females are left in what are called gestation
crates and can barely move - they cant
walk, turn around or even lie down comfortably. Pregnant sows
are kept in these prisons for most of their lives - four months
at a time for the duration of each pregnancy. Their only relief
is occasionally being moved to another metal-barred prison
(where they give birth and feed their young), or when they
are waiting to be impregnated again.
