It was quite the scene outside of Monroe's Wal-Mart Friday as a group lined sidewalks protest the treatment of pigs by the company. The protesters want America's number one retailer to stop selling pork products from companies that treat the animal inhumanely.
Four members of "Mercy for Animals" and a one big pig lined Lamy Lane to protest Wal-Mart's pork problems.
"Two different Wal-Mart pork suppliers we documented pregnant pigs confined to filthy metal crates that are so small the animals can barely move or turn around for their entire lives," says Phil Letten of "Mercy for Animals.
The protesters were met with heckles and honks, but they stood their ground hoping for change.
"We are calling on Wal-Mart to follow the lead of Costco, Kroger, Safeway, and other competitor to phase out these cruel trades."
Wal-Mart released this about their pork suppliers:
"This is a complicated issue and there are different points of view. "We hold our suppliers to the highest standards and do not tolerate animal mistreatment. We encourage customers interested in learning more about how grocers and restaurants source pork products to contact the National Pork Board"
"Mercy for Animals" will make 35 more stops at Wal-Mart around the country on their protesting tour.
