(US/tx) AR protest in front of Beaumont Wal Mart
August 16, 2012
A group called, "Mercy For Animals" says Wal Mart pork suppliers abuse animals.
Some of the group's members Thursday set up a 10-foot inflatable pig in a
cage near the Beaumont Wal Mart on Dowlen to bring attention to their
message. They say pork producers confine pregnant pigs in tiny crates on
factory farms where they are, "unable to even turn around, lie down
comfortably, or engage in other basic natural behaviors"
