Gas Chambers for Pigs in Austria: The Nightmare Behind Pork and Bacon
What are the standard procedures in the pork and bacon industry around the world? This shocking, heart-breaking video, shows how gas chambers for pigs are used in Austria.
The footage was taken in an undercover investigation carried by Austrian organization VGT Austria. It exposes the built-in cruelty of the meat industry, from the routine violence by the operation workers until the sophisticated system designed to kill young pigs at a minimum cost: suffocation in CO2 gas chambers.
The suffering of these smart and friendly animals is beyond imagination. Unfortunately, the system exposed in this video is not an isolated case. This is a widespread procedure in the pork and bacon industry.
What can be done to help pigs?
These pigs are held in farms of the meat industry. As any other business, meat farms only obey to the law of supply and demand. The less meat we consume, less animals will have to suffer this horrific torture.
