Crated Cruelty

This Saturday, CTV investigative current affairs program W5 broadcast disturbing undercover footage from inside a pig farm in Manitoba that supplies pork to Soebeys, Loblaws, Metro, and Walmart Canada.

The footage, released by Mercy for Animals Canada shows pregnant sows crammed into small metal gestation crates without room to turn around, and documents pigs bleeding from open wounds, sows with distended, inflamed bellies, and piglets being slammed on the floor by staff.
