The Real Cost of Meat: Spain’s Pig Meat Industry

Animal Equality recently investigated five pig farms in Spain, exposing the pain and suffering endured by millions of pigs every year.

Spain, ranking third in global pig meat production, slaughters over 56 million pigs annually. Evidence from the investigation reveals how many of these animals suffer and die from the harsh conditions before ever making it to slaughter.

Investigators found a disturbing pattern of cruelty and neglect, including wounded animals left without care surrounded by dead rats and maggots. The footage also shows pigs living among the dead bodies of other animals–some were found nibbling at the carcasses. Despite existing laws intended to protect pigs in Spain, inadequate government oversight leads to widespread non-compliance, resulting in 10-15% of pigs dying before reaching the slaughterhouse.
