In this sad video we can see the standard method for killing unwanted baby piglets in pig farms. This footage was filmed recently by Deutsches Tierschutzbüro inside a pig farm in Germany.

The workers grab the helpless baby pigs by their legs, and then continue to smash their small heads against concrete. The mother pigs that are inside tiny cages want to defend their babies but they can't move. And so, they are forced to watch the murder of their own babies. Forced to hear their cries of pain and their screams for help.

Almost all acts of violence in farms are done in order to earn more profits. In this case, farms want to get rid of all the small, weak and injured babies. This is because these piglets may not survive the horrible living conditions in pig farms, and may die before slaughter. As a result, workers look for these unwanted babies and kill them in the cheapest way possible.

The practice of smashing baby pigs against concrete floors (also known as "pig thumping") is common all around the world. Similar cases have been documented in the U.K., the U.S., Canada and other countries.

In order to help more animals escape a fate of misery, try to be vegan for 22 days! We highly recommend to join Challenge 22+ for both free guidance and support.
