The images published by Animal Equality shows once again the horror experienced by animals exploited by the meat industry, this time in a pig farm in Murcia.

In a shocking and only evidence offered to Animal Equality in a video interview, the operator claims to have witnessed more than fifty times the slaughter sows with swords, which as it happens regularly every week since he entered in 2009 to work on the farm

From Animal Equality today released a shocking video images recorded on the pig farm of El Escobar, located in Fuente Alamo de Murcia. It showed some scenes of violence to animals raised for food more brutal than our Research Team has had the opportunity to see, and because of which we have filed the corresponding criminal complaint through a crime of mistreatment of animals.

The video in question shows staff-including farm-makers and operators:

• Hitting hard on the head bristles with iron bars.

• Attacking the animals with large swords that pierce your sides repeatedly to kill them, including rales, after several minutes of agony. We also see how the operators move the swords stuck in the body of the bristles to aggravate your inner wounds, mocking their suffering at the camera as well as kicking and jumping on them to beat them with his elbow.

Opening the abdomen and uterus of sows with a knife to extract, live piglets that were to give birth. They also are torn intestines, liver and other organs, after several minutes of poking around inside their bodies with their hands and while the victims writhe and scream in pain. This practice is performed on pregnant sows can not be sent to slaughter for being lame or being unable to walk. The bristles are victims of this brutality abandoned after dying, their bodies stretched on the ground, until they eventually die.

It is terribly ironic that this farm was awarded in 2008 by the meat industry with Porc d’Or prize for piglets born alive.

Miguel Rodriguez Brown, an anesthesiologist at the Veterinary Hospital of the University Complutense of Madrid, declared on these facts:

“It’s the most horrible thing I’ve seen in my career about the treatment of animals. The suffering to which they are subjected is comparable to that we would suffer in that situation. The animals have suffered extreme pain and unmatched brutality. “

The renowned veterinarian and expert on bioethics of the Oxford Centre for Animal Ethics in the UK Andrew Knight said about the images published by Animal Equality:

“The treatment to these pigs is the most brutal abuse of farm animals I’ve seen in my life.Workers are clearly enjoying some of their behaviors. Treatment to these pigs is shockingly cruel and is, in fact, sadistic. “

By signing this petition you are sending a letter to the Directorate General of Livestock and Fisheries of Murcia to request the immediate closure of the farm and the corresponding penalties for all the facts.:-
