The HSUS is on a mission to spread awareness about cruel gestation crates. We went to the streets for The Great Crate Challenge to see how well people could hold up to the pressure of being locked in a metal crate so small, you can’t move freely, touch your toes, or turn around.
After four minutes, people understandably wanted out. Four minutes is nothing compared to four years, which is how millions of pigs are living their lives right now.
The pork industry’s leadership continues to defend the indefensible: Locking animals in these tiny, cramped cages. It’s hard to imagine a more miserable existence than being immobilized day and night.
