Bacon in 60 Seconds Flat

Can you step into the life of a pig on a factory farm for just one minute?

Those who know pigs often compare them to dogs, but most people don’t get the chance to interact with these outgoing, sensitive animals because more than 90 percent of pigs in the U.S. today are raised on factory farms. These pigs spend their entire lives in cramped, filthy warehouses, denied everything that is natural and important to them.

Mother pigs spend most of their miserable lives in tiny gestation crates that are too small for them to turn around in. They are forcibly impregnated again and again until their bodies give out and are then sent to slaughter.

Piglets are torn from their mothers after just a few weeks. Their tails are chopped off, the ends of their teeth are snipped off with pliers, and the males are castrated, all without painkillers. Then the pigs spend their entire lives in extremely crowded pens on slabs of filthy concrete.

When they are sent to slaughter, pigs are forced onto trucks that travel for many miles through sweltering summers and freezing cold winters. According to industry reports, more than 1 million pigs die in transport each year, and an additional 420,000 are crippled by the time they arrive at the slaughterhouse.

Because stunning isn’t reliable, many pigs are still conscious when their throats are slit or even when they’re dumped into scalding-hot water, which is intended to remove their hair and soften up their skin.
