Video At British Abattoir: Barbaric Inhumane Horse Slaughter


Barbaric Inhumane Horse Slaughter Video At British Abattoir


Just when I have thought I saw it all something else turns up horrific and barbaric. Horse slaughter is inhumane and should be against the law. The video I saw yesterday about horses being slaughtered at Red Lion Abattoir, in Cheshire.

How they are treating these horses destined for death is appalling and despicable. My heart stopped as I was watching the video.

Now if we stop and think about how the horses were treated inhumanely while being slaughtered at the Red Lion Abattoir, in Cheshire just think about what is happening to our horses here in the United Sates that are being shipped to Canada and Mexico.

I cannot imagine Mexico having any standard or regulations on horse slaughter. Our horses and wild horses are abused and tortured the second they enter the slaughter pipeline.

My heart breaks for these precious horses and what they endure before they die. They definitely are treated horrendous and cruel.

Revulsion over footage from British horse plant


The British Horse Society expressed its shock and revulsion at what it called sickening footage.

“The covert video released by Sky News includes scenes of a grey horse being beaten and groups of animals being stunned simultaneously, something that is completely illegal in Britain. Even more distressingly the film shows a horse apparently returning to consciousness (following stunning) whilst hanging upside down prior to be being bled out,” it said.

Chief executive Lynn Peterson said: “There are absolutely no excuses for what we have seen in this film.

“The treatment of these horses was barbaric, inhumane and frankly a downright disgrace in 21st century Britain. I know that every member of the British Horse Society will be as upset by this as I am and we must do everything we can to ensure this never happens again.

“We must praise the swift action of the Food Standards Agency in revoking the licenses of the slaughtermen involved but this cannot be the end of the matter. It is clear tighter regulation of abattoirs is required and we would support the compulsory installation of CCTV in all such premises.”





In transit, horses must continually shift their weight to maintain balance. A journey of 36–46 hours is the equivalent of being forced towalk for nearly two days without rest.


Thousands of horses are transported live from Spain and eastern Europe to southern Italy for slaughter every year, a journey of 36–46 hours.

The horses are denied adequate rest, food and water throughout the journey, breaking European Union regulations designed to protect them. The animals are constantly distressed by the overcrowding and are subjected to roasting temperatures that often exceed 40 degrees centigrade. The conditions result in extreme stress for these sensitive animals during their final hours.

The long journey to slaughter is unnecessarily cruel. Horses suffer this for one reason: if slaughtered in Italy, their meat can be misleadingly marketed to consumers as being of ‚traditional Italian‘ origin. European nations should enforce the…

The CAFO – MRSA Connection

Edible Aria

Americans are under threat from antibiotic-resistant superbugs, making us vulnerable to common, once treatable infections (such as MRSA). A remarkable 80 percent of antibiotics sold in the U.S. are used not by humans, but by the meat and poultry industries so factory farm animals can grow faster and survive the crowded and unsanitary conditions found in Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations (CAFOs).

This is creating superbugs on the farm and humans are exposed in a number of ways, including when we handle or eat undercooked meat. Our life-saving drugs are becoming less effective when we really need them. Unfortunately, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has refused to take meaningful action to restrict the use of unnecessary antibiotics in livestock production.

The „natural“ label has nothing to do with how an animal was raised.  The USDA requires only that no coloring or artificial ingredients are added to the final…

Selling porkies: boost for UK exports as Chinese pig out

Much of the exported pork will be offal, tripe, trotters, ears and other parts of the so called „fifth quarter“ – the parts Brits tend to turn their nose up at, but the Chinese savour

Farmaggedon — The True Cost of Cheap Meat

Over a three-year period, Philip Lymbery (CEO of Compassion in World Farming) travelled the world with a camera crew to explore the complex web of farming, fishing, industrial production, and international trade, which effects the food on our plate.
