Abuse Behind the Walls of UK Slaughterhouses


Since 2009 Animal Aid has secretly filmed inside ten randomly selected British slaughterhouses, including conventional 'humane' abattoirs, 'higher welfare' operations, and a non-stun halal slaughterhouse. We found illegal cruelty taking place in nine of them. You can see just some of the abuses in this video.
