North America is facing its coldest New Year in decades. Across the continent, animals are being transported in open-sided trucks through record low temperatures.
In the US and Canada, there are no specific legal requirements to protect animals in transport from the elements. Animals can suffer frostbite, hypothermia, or die en route. Pigs' skin can freeze to the side of metal trucks, needing to be ripped away when they arrive at the slaughterhouse.

    I see these kinds of transports here in Sweden as well and it is horrific. Is there any change going on in the US or in Canada to change this?

    I didn't know that pigs' skin can freeze to the truck. Yet another awful element in the animal abuse industry. Tragic
