Millions of Americans shop at Walmart for their groceries. When recent headlines revealed the devastating animal abuse that happens at Walmart animal farms for meat production, many people were understandably angry. Pigs and chickens were kept in tiny crates with little freedom to move.

Undercover animal rights activists displayed videos showing the horrific mistreatment and demanding changes be put in place protecting the animal’s welfare. Walmart has made new promises to end the torture of the animals in their farms and give them better living conditions, which Flavio Maluf can get behind.
