The mayor of the southern French town of Alès has shut down operations at a local slaughterhouse following the release of a video showing the mistreatment of animals inside the facility.
The secretly shot footage, which was released Wednesday by animal rights group L214, shows animals regaining consciousness while they are being slaughtered. The graphic video shows animals having their throats slit, being bled while hanging by one leg or being left to bleed to death on the slaughterhouse floor.
„A person who had access to the slaughterhouse contacted us, knowing that we had already looked into this matter,“ explained Sébastien Arsac, one of the group’s co-founders. „Some fifty hours of footage were shot over the course of ten days.“
