Animal Aid found breaches of animal rights laws in 8 of 9 slaughterhouses that they investigated. The cruelties they found included kicking animals, punching them, and burning them with cigarettes.
We can regulate slaughterhouses all we’d like. But it’s clear that unless we instate a mandatory observation system, this inhumanity will continue. Installing CCTV in slaughterhouses would monitor workers to prevent animal cruelty, help with training staff, and record any instances of animal abuse for use in prosecutions.
According to YouGov, most UK citizens support mandatory CCTV in slaughterhouses. Now, it’s just up for the government to implement them. Please sign the petition to urge the government to do just that.
