JBS USA, the second largest pork producer in the U.S., sources pigs from the East Fork Farm in Indiana.
But that farm may be No.1 when it comes to real documented cruelty to pigs.
At the farm, pigs' tails were detached without anesthetic. Pigs were placed in spaces deluged in their own urine and manure. Baby piglets were left to die, their corpses engulfed by maggots. Pigs were denied water and basic care.
A video documented it all.
It took a brave anonymous whistle blower to capture the images and expose the abuse.
Now JBS USA's source farm is being looked at by the Indiana State police for possible cruelty charges.
PETA's Colin Henstock talks to Emil Guillermo about the farm, and how if not for the whistleblower, the abuse of pigs would continue.
