We at PETA and other animal rights organizations repeatedly show the daily horror that countless animals are exposed to in the slaughterhouse.
In June, for example, the “Animal Rights” organization published dramatic scenes from a Belgian slaughterhouse that kills up to 650,000 pigs every year.
According to animal rights activists, the pork from “Van Hoornweder” from Torhout in Belgium will also find its way into German supermarkets.
Limping pigs, drowned in the brewing bath
The organization’s video shows animals that arrive at the slaughterhouse already injured and some of which should not have been transported at all.
Limping pigs with organ and tissue incidents, deep wounds, and large abscesses as well as heavily pregnant sows pull themselves out of the transporters and are insufficiently anesthetized on-site with electric forceps.
Others suffer a death throes on the unloading docks or are driven into the waiting bays by violence.
Many animals are not adequately stunned during the killing process.
The animals are sprayed with water so that the intensity of the electric forceps is increased
Again and again, workers use the electric pliers in the wrong places to stun again (!!!), and so the pain is unspeakable for the animals. Some are burned from it.
This also means that some animals are still conscious if their throats are cut or if they soak in the hot scald bath and suffocate in it.
Injured animals are abandoned in the waiting area and have to die a painful death because no one can free them from their suffering.
Some mothers sow spontaneously carry their animals to the waiting area.
Pregnant mothers who are not allowed to be transported are slaughtered and their children die in the womb.
In this slaughterhouse, the pigs are stunned with CO2.
The recordings show that a lot has gone wrong.
Many animals wake up earlier on the tape, so workers also try to stun them with an electric baton.
The pigs hang upside down so that the S-worker cannot see whether they are still alive or not.
Even after the neck veins have been severed, many animals show signs of life and practically die alive in hot water.
The blood that flows from the animals is used for black pudding.
Then the hair removal follows.
In this phase, one can see very clearly the heavily pregnant pigs, the animals with the injuries or the abscesses, and how the workers remove their insides together with the dead piglets.
This is how the schnitzel ends up on your plate.
What you can do
Killing an animal for food is always an unethical act when there are pain-free alternatives. With our free and non-binding vegan start program, we make it easier for you to start a vegan and animal-friendly life.
Please also sign our petition against the excruciating gas stunning in slaughterhouses.
And I mean… Veterinarians must be present at the slaughter, this also applies to Belgium!
Very rarely do they deal fairly with animal cruelty, because they do not want to lose their jobs.
Many who have filed criminal complaints at slaughterhouses for disregarding the animal welfare law are transferred to other departments or suspended.
The meat mafia is the strongest all over the world, obviously, the Belgian one has not even taught its servants how a pig must be slaughtered according to the animal welfare law.
Amateurs are at work who slaughter as they please.
40,000 EU officials are employed in the capital Brussels, and no office, no authority, no lazy official is able to deal with this illegal torture, which unqualified butchers practice unpunished in this slaughterhouse.
A shame for Brussels! an obvious and outrageous violation of the animal welfare law that saw its first days in Brussels.
Actually, one of many, as we know them in most slaughterhouses in the EU, because the EU is the strongest agricultural lobby and the best friend of the meat mafia.
My best regards to all, Venus
