For the first time, a Mercy For Animals investigator exposed a pig slaughterhouse in Brazil operated by the world’s largest meat company, JBS. Hidden-camera footage uncovers pigs painfully electrocuted and bled to death. Many of the dead bodies reveal damage to various organs and signs of pneumonia.
This investigation also exposes several hog farms in south and southeast Brazil—including one JBS supplier—and some of the worst standard practices in the pork industry. The investigator documented animals living in extremely dirty concrete pens and suffering from injuries and illnesses, such as damaged limbs, tremors, dizziness, and trouble breathing.
