Slaughterhouse Live

MAY 23, 2013
A handful of very brave animal right activists work undercover inside the nations largest animal processing plants and farms to expose the unspeakable horrors animals are faced with at the hands of some sadistic human beings.  These activists captured hidden camera and cellphone video of animals being tortured, not mistreated, but literally tortured and for their heroism the local authorities are trying to make their form of activism classified and punishable on the same level as home-grown terrorists like the Boston bombers.
Thanks to Tom Carlson for the asignment and for spoiling my love of all things meat.  I'm off the stuff and have never felt better in my body and mind.  Of course the powerlifting has taken a hit, but I'll trade it anyday for the peace of mind.

A detail of the image within the image. The story describes a scene where pigs are being castrated by hand with workers literally ripping the testicles from the animals who are left squealing in agony and bleeding.
This detail shows the very loose way I like to jam these textures together. I try an not overwork the rough edges. This entire image is of course made from my little tin can scan that I use every day.
