Common Enemy

This powerful documentary is both an exposé of the harms caused by modern animal agriculture—and a testament to the resilience of those living in its shadow.

Vicky Bond, THL President


Oklahoma has a growing factory farm problem. Concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFOs) are taking over the state—polluting air and water, forcing farmers off their own land, and creating hell on earth for animals.

95% of all pigs in Oklahoma live on just 33 industrial mega-farms. Deprived of sunlight. Deprived of adequate space. Deprived of any dignity that would make their lives worth living.


Oklahomans are raising their voices against the animal agriculture industry. Common Enemy tells their story.
