An Amazing Caged Pig Video

The way that farmed pigs are treated is horrible in some places - I'm not sure how they're treated here in Nova Scotia - I know that all chickens are free range, so I hope that pigs are also treated with at least a smidge of dignity - but this video is amazing in the way that it anthropomorphizes the pig enough so that you can really feel just sick for this poor animal. It is a work of art.

    Joan:I doubt that all chickens raised in NS are free range. Infact I suspect that most are treated as horribly here as anywhere else.As for pigs NB has factory farms that treat pigs in the same fashion as shown in the video and NS is probably no different. We human animals are very good at inhumanely exploiting all types of other animals and easily rationalizing it. RG

  2. Luckily the Exhibition is still on out at Exhibition park this weekend - because last year when I was out there, I was told that all egg producers in the province free ranged their chickens - I'm going out there tomorrow morning, so I'll try and find some stuff out about egg farmers and pork producers as well.

    Joan,while you are there perhaps you could express displeasure for their sponsorship of a barbaric event called a rodeo. RG
