The Humane Society released an undercover video of extraordinarily cruel treatment of animals at a pig supplier for Tyson Foods, the largest meat producer in the U.S. The video is shocking. Baby pigs are being kicked around like soccer balls. Sick mother pigs are being beaten. And sows are being locked in “gestation crates” - cages so small the animal can barely move, and can’t even turn around…for their entire lives. There is no reason to treat animals this cruelly.

Shocking Animal Cruelty at Tyson Foods Supplier Warning: Contains Graphic Footage. Undercover video footage at "Wyoming Premium Farms" revealing egregious cruelty and filthy conditions at a Wyoming pig breeding facility owned by a supplier for Tyson Foods.



Burger King, McDonald’s, Wendy’s, and Safeway have all committed to eliminating gestation crates from their supply chains. But Tyson doesn’t just condone this cruelty, which scientific evidence proves causes extreme animal suffering - it defends it. It shouldn’t take intrepid animal welfare activists going undercover to document mistreatment. Tyson should be making every effort to root animal mistreatment out of its supply chain. And with so much momentum building around this issue now, we have a huge opportunity to make the second largest meat producer in the world stop this abuse for good.
