Some piglets are born so small and weak that they'll do nothing but die. You put it under a heat lamp and pamper it...it will lay on it's side, spin in a circle, squeal uncontrollably and eventually die. That is, if the other piglets don't tire of it first and chew it's tail and face off.
Sometimes, the acts that appear to be brutal and unnecessary are in reality an act of kindness.
I know that won't make sense to a lot of people, but there is truth to it.
I've smash piglets against a concrete wall. It wasn't pleasant, but I try not to explain it to someone who doesn't understand what's involved in raising animals for slaughter. Your hands WILL get dirty.
