They were hoping to expose them for their ‘disgusting and inhumane’ practices on live animals, however, they probably weren’t expecting one of the farmers to take matters into his own hands to get them off his property.
Footage uploaded to Facebook shows one bloke allegedly fly kick a protestor in the back with a running jump start. The activist went flying and the pig farmer then yelled at everyone else to get out.
“Get out now, every single one of you, I don’t give a f**K,” he said. “All of you get out, otherwise I will wrap this f**king bar round your f**king heads.”
In a separate video, the man screamed: “I’ll tell you now, if you’re not f**king gone within two minutes I’m going to get a gun and f**king shoot you all.”
The footage is dark but it allegedly shows the man going to punch the same person he just fly kicked as everyone else screams at him to stop.
Meat the Victims posted a message alongside the video that said: “If this is the way he treats peaceful humans, imagine how he treats those innocent beings in there.
“This is not an isolated case. Farmers DO NOT love their hostages. They love making money from caging them, mutilating them, raping them and murdering them.
We just happen to catch this farmer’s abuse to the humans on camera. The animal abuse is legal.
“If you’re not vegan you are paying for this man to be in business. You are paying for these horrific places to be legal for the selfish choices you make when you choose to pay for and consume the bodies of victims.”
“Officers attended at the address and found a number of people present nearby. Following inquiries a man was arrested on suspicion of four offences of assault,” they said in a statement.
“The arrested man was later released under investigation and enquiries remain ongoing.” The Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs said the conditions at Hall Green Farm are ‘no worse than any other farm’.
