New Animated Short Film About Factory Farming

HSUS and award-wining Aardman Animations’ new film tells the story about a pig’s escape from a factory farm.

Similar to nonprofit Animals Australia’s anti-factory farming campaign, The Humane Society of the United States has taken a gentler approach to the subject of factory farms with its latest animated short film, A Pig’s Tail. To create this short film, HSUS joined forces with the animation company behind the famous Wallis and Gromit series, Aardman Animations. A Pig’s Tail tells the story of a young piglet who dreams of escaping a factory farm to live outside on a sunny farm with grass and fresh air—a place where pigs can roam free. The video is earning high praise from reviewers for its any-age message.
