We were researching the story that attracted a huge crowd оn FB from our fans.
It was the story of a sad pig that seemed to be alive on a baking ring. We can not conclude by concluding that the piglet of the cover of this text is alive or not.
But we can confidently confirm that such a practice of cruelty and brutality in the killing of piglets exists anywhere in the world. You don’t have to travel halfway around the world to see cruelty similar to that in India or in Indonesia on display: crates and cages jam-packed with live animals, limp and lifeless bodies blow-torched in preparation for eating, whole carcasses on display by meat vendors – it all goes on here, too. The only difference is the species of animal that is being served up.
We are sharing a story of where a group of villagers throws kerosene on an almost dead stiff pig to singe/burn off its hair. Then they scrape the hair off, to make it ready for roasting. The pig is alive and fully dead when they put on the baking ring. This story and this video footage is part of the professionally-shot broadcast stock footage archive of Wilderness Films India Ltd., the largest collection of imagery from South Asia.
