Pigs, who died in transit, dumped behind a truck at the slaughterhouse.

Quote from Lancaster Farming (October 27, 1990): "Death losses during transport are too high -- amounting to more than million per year. But it doesn't take a lot of imagination to figure out why we load as many hogs on a truck as we do. It's cheaper... Even with a zero death rate that might be associated with providing more space on the truck, the hogs we save would not be enough to pay for the increased transportation costs of hauling fewer hogs on a load."
