Review for Humane Farming Association, San Rafael, CA, USA

Rating: 3 stars  

HFA Campaign Against Factory Farming - Subject of HBO Documentary

HFA secured a conviction in this case for the way in which piglets were being brutalized. This was the very first time in the state’s history that there was a successful cruelty prosecution of a hog factory.

For the first time ever in the United States, a feature documentary regarding the mistreatment of animals within the pork industry has been broadcast by a major cable network. HBO’s Death on A Factory Farm focuses exclusively on the groundbreaking work of the Humane Farming Association, detailing HFA’s undercover investigation of Wiles Farm, the notorious hog factory located in Wayne County, Ohio.

The abuses uncovered by HFA at Wiles Farm include the starvation of sick and injured pigs, forcing pigs to live in their own waste, severe overcrowding and cannibalism, beatings, inhumane transport – and the hanging and slow death by asphyxiation of struggling and fully conscious pigs. Against overwhelming odds, HFA secured a conviction in this case for the way in which piglets were being brutalized.
