From Change.org comes some news about discontinuing the use of gestation crates for pigs – or I should say, at least improving the housing for them. This comes from Tyson and Smithfield, two of the largest pork producers in the U.S. However, it did take undercover work and investigation from Mercy for Animals to get the change accomplished. And it’s also so gratifying to learn Tyson will discontinue the practice of “slamming piglets headfirst against the ground to kill them”. At least this is a start but consumers should demand these changes and check to see if Tyson and Smithfield follow through on these promises. Next, Walmart needs some prodding .
