Editorial Reviews

There's a struggle being waged in the U.S. today - over how we treat the animals that end up on our dinner plates. More than ten billion animals are raised for consumption in the U.S. every year, most on industrialized "factory farms." Virtually no federal laws mandate the humane treatment of farm animals. Because most state laws are weak and/or rarely enforced, animal-rights groups have turned to undercover investigators to help expose abuse on factory farms. This is the story of one such investigator's disturbing descent into a factory farm. Following the success of the 2006 documentary Dealing Dogs, directors Tom Simon and Sarah Teale return to HBO to tell the story of an animal-rights investigator, "Pete," who goes undercover on a factory hog farm to explore a whistle blower's allegations.

This disc is expected to play back in DVD Video "play only" devices, and may not play in other DVD devices, including recorders and PC drives.

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

5.0 out of 5 stars Opened my eyes about factory farming! July 24, 2009
This video exposed all that is wrong with today's factory farms. No one would believe that in this day and age, factory farmers would be lynching their disabled animals, but that's exactly what took place at Wiles Farm in Ohio. I'm sure this isn't the only factory where such abuse is rampant. Really opened my eyes. Thanks to the Humane Farming Association and "Pete", the undercover investigator, for prompting this excellent documentary about what really takes place inside the pork industry.

This is a fantastic film! It makes people aware about what takes place behind the closed doors of America's factory farms. Kudos to the Humane Farming Association for getting the animal abusers prosecuted.

5.0 out of 5 stars The last bastion of cruelty? August 30, 2009
By Anomaly
This video documents the horrific abuse that routinely occurs on factory farms in America. This is not a piece of propaganda, but a revealing documentary. Watch it and decide for yourself whether you can justify our current practices.

5.0 out of 5 stars Death on a Factory Farm March 23, 2010
Verified Purchase
This should be shown in every school classroom. Everyone should be aware of how their food comes to be. Animals give their life for humans to exist and we treat them with such callous actions. They should be treated as well as humans. Animals have feelings and they feel physical pain. It showed the reality of where our food comes from and the cruelty that is allowed to be done to creatures who have no choice as to their place in the food chain. To take an animal just born and slam it on the ground because of whatever reason is not acceptable. If humans were on the receiving end, which we ought to be, it would be a betrayal to us. The investigator who went undercover several times is to be applauded for bringing real footage of the torture being inflicted on defenseless animals. Whether they are lower on the food chain or not, they deserve respect.

5.0 out of 5 stars Real life animal farming. November 11, 2009
Verified Purchase
This movie really tells the story of where our meat comes from and how it is processed. Animal cruelity is what it is all about in order for humans to get their supply of fresh meat. To bad our politicians are all paid off and allow this horrific abuse to continue. I give hope to the individuals that support the end to this abuse of animals. God bless them!
