Slaughterhouse Workers Fired for Brutally Abusing Pigs

Workers at a North Carolina slaughterhouse caught on hidden camera brutally abusing pigs have been fired.

Several employees of Murphy Family Ventures, which owns pig-breeding farms that supply the country's largest pork producer Smithfield Foods, were filmed by an undercover investigator from People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) dragging and beating swine, gouging out their eyes and castrating their babies without painkillers.
