The treatment of living animals at the Iron Maiden Hog Farm were no less inhumane. The investigators reported that almost all of the adult pigs were crammed into tiny gestation crates where they spent their lives unable to turn around or fully lay down. Sick and injured sows and piglets were left unattended for days at a time and many died slowly, alone and in pain. Adding to their misery, sows who became too weak to walk had their legs tied together to prop them upright in their pens. Many had been tied so tightly for so long that the ropes had cut into their flesh and the skin had grown around them.
