Pig Abuse Exposed

CHICAGO -- A disturbing video released exclusively to Fox News by the animal rights group Mercy for Animals (MFA) shows a string of alleged abuses at one of the nation's largest pig farms, including footage of employees picking up baby pigs and tossing them like footballs.

Additional scenes from the video show injured pigs going uncared for, pregnant hogs being kept in very small pens, with several portions of the video so disturbing that Fox News will not show.

MFA is now taking on America's farming industry, hoping its latest undercover investigation will help create new federal and state laws to ensure better treatment for farm animals before they are slaughtered.
