Will This Horror Ever End.

Hello Folks,
.

I am saddened to have to write this post on what is unfortunately a sadly familiar subject.

.

I read in the press about this video, which was apparently taken at an Essex abattoir.

.

The film footage was taken secretly by animal welfare campaigners for Animal Aid, over a period of a few days, and shows pigs being savagely ill-treated by slaughterhouse workers.

.

The animals are seen having cigarettes put out on their faces, they are beaten, they are shocked carelessly, hit with sharp paddles and generally caused great fear and suffering.

.

This is a huge slaughterhouse which kills about 6,000 pigs per week.
.

Unbelievably there will be no prosecution for doing this.

.

The following footage is harrowing and should be approached with this warning in mind, and it also provides more comprehensive information about what was consequently done about the cruelty.

Footage shot at Elmkirk Ltd (Cheale Meats) slaughterhouse (5 min version) from Animal Aid on Vimeo.

This film shows the violations of the Welfare of Animals (Slaughter or Killing) Regulations that Animal Aid found after secretly filming at Elmkirk Ltd (Cheale Meats) slaughterhouse in Essex. More information at http://animalaid.org.uk/h/n/NEWS/news_slaughter/ALL/2525///
