Mercy for Animals, Phil Letten, Shines Light on Walmart Cruelty
There is a national campaign going on right now against Walmart. Walmart is supporting animal abuse by selling pork from factory farms who continue to use gestation crates, which are banned in many countries and several states. Shocking hidden-camera video of animal abuse recorded at a Walmart pork supplier revealed: pregnant pigs confined for nearly their entire lives in crates barely larger than their own bodies, pigs suffering from bloody open wounds and infections, and conscious piglets being slammed headfirst into the ground and having their testicles ripped out and tails cut off without painkillers. Phil Letten, National Campaign Coordinator for Mercy for Animals, discusses the campaign and their mission to get Walmart to quit buying pork from these type of suppliers. His message about the cruel treatment of pigs has gained national attention and a story that needs to be told.
