A giant inflatable pig was on display outside the Wal-Mart on Dana Drive in Redding on Monday.
It was there as part of a protest by Mercy for Animals, an animal advocacy group based out of LA.
The protest today was about alleged poor conditions in pig farms that Wal-Mart buys pork from.
Mercy for Animals hopes to raise awareness for what they claim is the pigs suffering and to get Wal-Mart to change where they get their pork from.
By changing the housing practices the protesters claim Wal-Mart may even save money. They cite an Iowa State study from 2007 which says group housing for pigs is 11% less expensive than their current practices.
The protesters will head out to continue their nationwide protest in San Jose and Bakersfield.
