Speaking of meat, here's some salacious slaughterhouse reading from the comments section. This is just one tidbit. There's a lot more.

If you get a hog in the chute that refuses to move, you take a meat hook and clip it into his anus. You try to do this by clipping the hipbone. Then you drag him backwards. Your dragging these hogs alive, and a lot of times the meat hook rips out of the bunghole. I've seen hams--thighs--completely ripped open. I've also seen intestines come out. If the hog collapses near the front of the chute, you shove a meat hook into his cheek and drag him forward.
Just another day's work to bring home the bacon. Mmmmm....
