Following reports by Greenpeace that suggest Monsanto aims to patent the pig (see article here), we take a close look at this animal whom naturalist, W.H. Hudson, referred to as “among the most intelligent of beasts”. With assistance from Dr. Eva Pip, a professor at the University of Winnipeg specializing in toxicology and water safety, Dr. Michael Greger, esteemed vegan nutritionist and Director of Public Health and Animal Agriculture at The Humane Society of the United States, and Jeffrey Masson, former psychoanalyst and bestselling author largely credited for revealing the emotional lives of animals to the world, we explore the tragic life of today’s factory farmed pig, what farming and eating them is doing to ourselves, and the dignified intelligence and surprising emotional availability of this misunderstood animal.
