Animal Rights Activist Group FARM Pays Students $1 To Watch Animal Abuse Video

Oct 7, 2015

The animal rights group FARM, paid one dollar to any Eastern Michigan University student who watched an animal abuse video of undercover footage from factory farms and slaughterhouses during their visit to campus this week.  

Students were shocked as they saw pigs get their tails cut-off without any anesthesia.  The video also showed chickens getting their beaks cut-off.

FARM used a customized truck with integrated TV screens to show the video. 

Sophomore Gordon Reynolds couldn't believe what he saw and plans to eat less meat.

FARM stopped by EMU as part of a national tour that exposes what some animals go through before they are consumed.
