“The video shows that this farm euthanizes piglets by throwing them onto the cement floor. We have laws and regulations in Canada that are supposed to ensure that when an animal is being killed, it must be done humanely.  This means quickly and with no pain or suffering. Many of the piglets shown are still conscious after being thumped to the ground repeatedly.  The pain and suffering of these young piglets would be extreme.”
