People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals said it had documented cruelty to pigs at a supplier for U.S. meat company Smithfield Foods Inc.

After an undercover investigation, PETA said late on Tuesday that it had discovered workers at Murphy Family Ventures of Wallace, North Carolina, might have violated state laws against cruelty to animals.

The group said it had videotaped evidence of workers who hit and jabbed pigs in the face with metal gate rods, dragged injured animals, and denied them treatment for injuries.
