   JBS Suspends Shipments From Supplier Implicated In Undercover Animal Abuse Video

Activists opposed to animal cruelty are calling on Greeley-based meat processing giant JBS USA to stamp out what they deem abusive practices in the company’s pork supply chain.

Nonprofit organization Mercy for Animals held a press conference in Denver on Tuesday morning highlighting the findings of an undercover investigation it says one of its operatives performed at a Tosh Farms pig operation in Kentucky. Tosh supplies pork to JBS, according to its website.

The investigator shot video footage inside the Franklin, Ky., facility between December and March, the nonprofit says. While there, he taped workers engaging in a variety of violent behavior. Video clips show pigs being punched, kicked and beaten with tools. Piglets are allegedly castrated and have their teeth cut without anesthesia, according to Mercy for Animals. In perhaps the most upsetting portion of the short video, workers are seen bashing piglets heads on concrete floors.
