US - Welfare campaigning group, Humane Farm Animal Care (HFAC), has condemned animal cruelty recently revealed by an undercover video shot at one of America's largest pig breeding farms.

HFAC says the video shows abuse of sows and piglets by workers at the plant.

The film was originally shown on Fox News, which stated that there are other scenes from the investigation too disturbing to air.
