Raising farm animals for human consumption solely for profit, without regard to humane farm practices, human and animal health concerns, environmental sustainability, or farm worker safety.
Before Wilbur was rescued from a factory farm he was kept with 19 other pigs in a tiny concrete pen without any access to the outdoors. His tail was cut off without anesthesia when he was just a little piglet and soon after he developed respiratory disease from the lack of clean, fresh air. The stench of feces and urine inside the factory was overwhelming, but it's all Wilbur knew. Being a normal pig, Wilbur is as smart as a dog or a three year old human, but he couldn't figure out how to free himself from factory farming. Lucky for him, some kind people rescued Wilbur and now he gets to live out the rest of his life on a beautiful farm with mud puddles to play in and grass to roll around on.
