Mercy for Animals releases disturbing footage of Pig Farm
abuse; Oakton Community College pledges to stop using live animals ...
On Monday, Mercy for Animals, an animal rights group based in Chicago,
Illinois, released a video exclusive to Fox News depicting several disturbing
abuses committed against pigs in a central Pennsylvania pig farm. According
to Fox News, the video allegedly shows baby pigs being picked up by their
ears and thrown to other employees, pregnant pigs being kept in �very small
pens� and other abuses which were so disturbing that Fox News refused to show
In other words, Mercy for Animals succeeded in producing a video so
disturbing that Fox News--whose television network sibling has produced some
of the strangest, most bizarre and exploitative reality television
shows--would not sure parts of it due to their content. Which means its some
seriously disturbing footage. ... While the video of the pigs being
mistreated may put a damper in animal rights activists steps, news from
Oakton Community College (located in Des Plaines, a suburb of Chicago) should
make them happier. After a concerned student contacted People For The Ethical
Treatment of Animals (PETA) about a professor from the school cutting open
�live rats and mudpuppies� in order to study how their organs worked.
Needless to say, the student was upset. However, after much pressure from the
animal rights organization, Oakton Community College pledged recent to stop
using live animals for all of its classes.
