Real Pig Farming

Or, rather #realpigfarming --it's a hashtag over on twitter & it's just vile.

It's got all these intensive-confinement operators posting pics of their horrendous "farms" & being all proud and full of shit.

Nothing like spending an evening telling them to cut the crap.  I don't know what's more nauseating: their faux joy and grinning "ask a farmer" tweets or their replies ("the mama pigs just love being indoors!")

Being indoors=being caged for life.

Would you do this to your dog, I ask the farmers...
I feed the world, they reply.

You create hell on earth, I say. Hell on Earth. Trapped animals, liquid manure, cruelty, slaughter.
