13 y.o.’s surprisingly-moving claymation about life of slaughterhouse pig

This is a surprisingly-disturbing, and heartbreaking, claymation video made by 13 year old Kyle Kelleher, about the life of a pig in a slaughterhouse.

I’m a carnivore, and this really disturbed me.

I googled the claim about cutting the baby pigs’ tails off. It’s true. Ostensibly to stop them from biting each other’s tails when fighting. I couldn’t find anything about the rate of complications from the tail cutting.

What a disturbing video for a 13 year old kid’s claymation. Well done.
