Another reason why factory farms are dangerous, lives of animals are not taken serious and these are not humane operations for the animals, consumers and also workers at these places. Barn fires can occur without warning and can kill animals in several hundreds because the livestock is crowded in these mega barns under inhumane conditions. In this case, 7,500 to 8,000 pigs perished. This fire started in the office. Spread up the wall into the ceiling and throughout the building. The reporting party reportedly tried to put the fire out but was not able. Another reason to doubt the unsafe operation of these facilities.
