Exposed in late 2022 for the continued use of sow stalls, five years after the pig farming industry claimed to have phased them out.

On February 11th 2024, hidden cameras installed by investigators caught a worker r*ping a female pig (sow) who was confined in a farrowing crate. The cameras also captured routine surgical procedures performed on young piglets without pain relief, and the brutal killing of 'runt' piglets by smashing their heads against the floor.
