FORT WAYNE, Ind. (www.incnow.tv) -- If you drove by the Wal-Mart on Coldwater Tuesday afternoon and saw something unusual, your eyes weren't deceiving you.

Mercy For Animals and local animal rights activists staged a protest in front of the store, bringing along with them a huge inflatable pig.

A spokesperson for the group says they just wanted to inform shoppers about how Wal-Mart suppliers of pork treat the animals, confining them in tiny crates.
