Smithfield Foods Hates Puppies

February 22, 2011

Steve Pokin, a St. Louis Today reporter, has an outstanding article about how Smithfield Foods bought off local politicians to gut a puppy mill law. And why would a pork company have any interest in opposing cruelty bans pertaining to dogs? Smithfield is afraid that if dogs got better standards, legal precedent would be set for pigs as well.
