Walmart Cruelty Tour comes to Pittsburgh!

Do you support cramming animals into crates so small they can't turn around, lie down comfortably, or walk for their entire lives? Walmart does. In fact, pork sold in Walmart stores comes from factory farms where pregnant pigs spend their miserable lives locked in narrow gestation crates barely larger than their own bodies—unable to engage in basic behaviors and denied all mental stimulation.

Following a Mercy For Animals undercover investigation exposing shocking animal abuse at a major Walmart pork supplier, we are now calling on the world's largest retailer to require its suppliers to phase out inherently cruel gestation crates. Join Mercy For Animals in Springfield for an eye-catching protest outside a Walmart store. Protestors will be joined by a 10-foot-tall, inflatable pig, covered in bloody sores and crammed inside a tiny gestation crate.

Signs, banners, and leaflets will be provided. Media is expected at the event, so please dress professionally. Encourage your friends and family to join you at this peaceful protest. And, before attending, please be sure to sign MFA's petition urging Walmart executives to phase out gestation crates, and then share the petition and undercover video with others. For more details about the campaign, visit WalmartCruelty.com.

For additional details about the event, please e-mail Jeni Haines (jenih@mercyforanimals.org), national campaign coordinator, or call 916-934-9460.

Where: Outside Walmart at 250 Summit Park Dr. (on public sidewalk near store entrance on Summit Park Dr. by Walmart sign), Pittsburgh, PA
When: Tuesday, June 25, 2013 at 10:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

So after Wal-Mart gets rid of gestation crates, all will be well for the pigs?

Is animal use not inherently cruel?

I can't imagine the cow flesh or chicken flesh Wal-Mart sells comes from any better conditions before the nonhuman animals are killed

Why not just promote veganism since regardless of the method of containment, the animals are going to be treated like property (very poorly) until they're killed
