Farm owner responds to pig abuse video
The operators of an Iowa farm where an animal rights
group captured video of workers abusing pigs have said they are taking steps to
ensure the mistreating of animals stops.
MowMar LLP of Fairmont, Minn., said in a statement that it's "surprised and
outraged" by the actions captured this summer in undercover video by People for
the Ethical Treatment of Animals. MowMar purchased the Greene County, Iowa, farm
last month from an Iowa company.
"As a family owned farm operation with
over 30 years in the swine business, MowMar farms does not and will not tolerate
the mistreatment of any animals under our husbandry and we take these PETA
allegations very seriously," the company said.
MowMar officials said
they met early Thursday with PETA officials to talk about what actions are being
taken to correct the situation. Click here for
