Descrizione - THESE sickening scenes show pigs fighting for space in a rat-infested barn -- yards from piles of maggot-infested carcasses. The distressed animals were secretly filmed at a Norfolk farm signed up to the Freedom Food scheme -- backed by the RSPCA -- which is meant to guarantee high animal welfare standards. Footage shot over six weeks reveals pigs mired in a swamp of mud, faeces and urine in a dark barn. Rats scurry up walls and pick through overflowing bins of rotting carcasses, spilling maggots into pens where healthy and sick pigs are crammed together. Pigs spend 24 hours a day in this horrific state until they are sent for slaughter. The dead animals are then sold by owners Easey Pigs Ltd to food processors who supply supermarket giant Tesco.
