Korean Pig Dumps

Below, is a video showing how pigs in Korea are killed when there is a fear of a virus infection. These pigs, which would have been bred for human food production, cannot enter the food chain as it would be harmful to humans. They are therefor, considered ‘useless‘. To destroy the pigs, they are dumped alive and conscious into a mass grave, one on top of the other.

The following video does contain images which viewers may find upsetting. I encourage everyone (especially those who eat animal products) to watch this video. It gives us an insight into the suffering we inflict on innocent animals on a daily basis.

The pigs are seen crying and screaming desperately, trying to survive as their fellow pigs are being dumped on top of them. To me, this looks like a scene from a horror film, not a common method that should be used everyday by the food industry.
This is a typical example of how humans view animals as ‘our own’ and how we believe that we are somehow superior to another being, simply because that being was born into a different species. These pigs are clearly being treated as nothing more than objects and raw materials.

On a lighter note, here is a video of how pigs and other animals should be treated.

  1. I love pigs. I haven’t had pork since 1986. They are incredibly intelligent animals. Did you ever read “The Good Good Pig” by Sy Montgomery? It’s one of my favorite books. She saved an ill piglet and let him live out his life on her farm. I think he lived to 13 or older.
