The Pigs of America

Very disturbing news out of Bayard, Iowa.

One of the main suppliers for Hormel Foods, makers of Spam and other disgusting animal products, is under the national spotlight after videos and testimonials of animal abuse were brought into the public eye.

After someone from the farm complained months back, PETA, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, sent in two undercovers to document the horrible practices happening on the farm.

From slamming piglets onto concrete floors to shoving metal rods up the backsides of pigs, the inbred hillbillies running this farm are now under investigation.

A video taken by one of the PETA undercovers, reveals some of the hate.

"I hate them. These [expletives] deserve to be hurt. Hurt, I say!," the employee yells as he hits a pig with a metal rod. "Hurt! Hurt! Hurt! Hurt! ... Take out your frustrations on 'em."

How could there be so much hate?

What goes through the head of a human being while shoving a metal rod up the rear of a pig?

What sick, twisted pleasure do these rednecks get out of something so awful?

Hopefully extreme action will be taken against the farmers involved. Incidents like this should never take place, but sadly do quite often. Luckily, there were video cameras capturing the men on this farm and the inexplicable occurrences that took place.

Karma is a bitch.
