Protest Walmart’s Cruelty
Wednesday, August 15, 2012 @ 10:30 am – 12 noon
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 Mercy For Animals’ undercover investigation exposing shocking animal abuse at a major Walmart pork supplier, MFA 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 Houston 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.
