The video team collected the footage recorded without the farmer's knowledge. According to Glass Wall Films, the animals at Cross Farm in Devon were malnourished and had untreated injuries. Also there is not enough space in the corrals to move the animals. Pig carcasses were left in the corral area and throughout the farm's maternity ward.

“We were interested in documenting how animal welfare had improved over time on British farms, so we went to a place where improvements were promised. It was a big shock to us that instead of getting better, things were worse than before, maybe even worse,” said Christopher Shoebridge of Glass Wall Films. told the Guardian.

According to a British newspaper report, the farm condemned by activists is part of a certification scheme for high-quality products. But this is not the first time the company has been the target of complaints. In 2017, another investigation resulted in reports of poor livestock conditions on the property, which was estimated to house 12,000 pigs.

“Our client is shocked and saddened by what the footage has revealed, and appalled by what appears to be a routine violation of the Public Welfare Act,” the activists said in a letter to authorities.
