PETA: Animal Abuse at Another Indiana Farm
BROWNSTOWN, Ind. -- A new video from PETA shows animal abuse at another Indiana farm.
PETA says it happened at East Fork Farms in Jackson County, which supplies to a Louisville slaughterhouse that makes Swift Brands pork. It's sold at Kroger, Costco, and other grocery stores.
In the video, mother pigs were injured and bloody, and dead piglets were left to rot.
In one part, a worker cut off piglets' tails and threw the animals several feet through the air.
PETA says it has asked Indiana State Police to investigate the farm and has alerted the Indiana Occupational Safety and Health Administration to worker safety concerns.
It's the second time this year that an Indiana farm has been called out for animal abuse. In June, Fair Oaks Farms in northwest Indiana was investigated after an undercover video showed workers abusing cows.
