Vegan actor Rooney Mara has released a video of her recent investigation into two factory farms.

Mara partnered global farmed animal advocacy organization, Animal Equality to expose the ‘abhorrent conditions’ endured by animals in the pig and chicken facilities.

The investigation, titled With My Own Eyes, calls on viewers to ‘examine the harsh and painful reality for billions of animals and the many reasons the global community must break its dependence on animal products’.

‘Nothing prepares you’

“Nothing prepares you for looking into the eyes of a mother pig whose life is to be impregnated and left in a cage until she’s slaughtered,” Rooney Mara said in a statement sent to Plant Based News.

“I kept thinking about my sister who just had a baby, and how beautiful that instant desire to nurture and protect your child is.

“I can’t imagine how awful it must be to be literally trapped and crushing your own babies and not be able to do anything about it.”

‘What the industry doesn’t want you to see’

Sharon Núñez, President of Animal Equality, added: “Animal Equality’s undercover investigators face great personal risk to expose what the meat industry doesn’t want you to see, and what the public has every right to know.

“We are deeply grateful to Rooney for bravely looking into the eyes of these animals, and joining us in our promise to them to share their cries with anyone who will listen. Her courage is truly inspiring.”

Animal Equality says 9 billion chickens and 121 million pigs are slaughtered every year for their meat, according to the USDA, and 90 percent of these animals are raised on factory farms.
