New Video Reveals Abuse at Walmart Supplier

Mercy For Animals has documented abuse of pigs at Christensen Farms.

In a new video released yesterday by Mercy For Animals, workers at Christensen Farms in Minnesota were recorded abusing pigs. The disturbing video shows workers killing piglets by slamming them into the ground and preparing to feed sows dead piglets, and many pigs suffering from wounds or prolapses, without any veterinary care. Christensen Farms, which supplies pork to Walmart, confines its pregnant pigs in gestation crates—metal stalls so small that the pigs are not able to turn around. Recognizing the crates’ inherent cruelty, a number of companies, including Safeway, McDonald’s, Burger King, and Kroger, have announced that they will no longer purchase pork from suppliers who use gestation crates.
