Urgent: Oppose the EATS Act.
HIDDEN CAMERAS UNVEILTHE CRUEL REALITYFOR MOTHER PIGS
Pro-pork lawmakers have reintroduced the EATS Act, a dangerous bill that failed to pass in 2021, in response to the Supreme Court’s decision to uphold pig protections.
This legislation, if passed, would negatively impact the vast majority of land animals raised for food in the United States and reverse decades of progress.
At this Nebraska pig farm, our investigator captured some of the most horrific animal cruelty ever made public: pregnant pigs confined to cramped individual gestation crates where they experienced depression-like states and were driven mad by boredom and stress.
Here’s what our cameras captured:
FRUSTRATION AND DEPRESSIONOne mother pig was in a state of depression. Her eyes were open, but she didn’t move. Her feeder was full but untouched.
DOWNED PIGSAnother pig, left to suffer without veterinary care, died in pain over many hours.
TRAPPED FAMILIESPacked tightly in her crate, one mother couldn’t move to free her baby. He suffocated slowly as he was crushed.
THE EATS ACT
would override 15 state anti-confinement laws.

GET THE FACTS ABOUT PIGS
PERCEPTIVE PIGSPigs are considered one of the most intelligent animals—even more intelligent than dogs—and can play video games with more focus and success than chimps!
PIG PERSONALITIESPigs are unique individuals with their own personalities and a wide range of temperaments and emotions.
PLAYFUL PIGSLike dogs and other animals, pigs are very playful and engage in social and object play. They shake and carry objects, toss or wave their heads, scamper, jump, hop, paw, pivot, gambol, and flop. Pigs are also foragers, and when free to do so, they forage for most of the day.
