Video: Disturbing Abuse Of Australian Cattle At Slaughterhouses

Animals Australia and RSPCA Australia have launched a public campaign against the torture cattle endure during live export. The campaign asks the Live Export organization to reconsider the trade of living animals because of the cruel way they are treated before being slaughtered.

Note, they are not necessarily advocating vegetarianism or the elimination of slaughterhouses (although there are many benefits to reducing industrialized slaughterhouses including cutting down on pollution, increase agricultural land and reduction of animal cruelty), but they argue the unfair treatment of live animals being exported to other countries.

  1. If anyone is interested, the book `Slaughterhouse’ by Gail Eisnitz is an excellent investigation into the meat packing industry in the US, a really disturbing example of how the maximization of profit can seemingly be put before everything else.

    Barbaric. People think that just because we eat them we can treat them like shit. You can thank anthropocentrism for that.

    This is exactly why we need to ban video recording devices in slaughterhouses.

    Sociopaths. Can you spot the
    sociopaths?

    If we deal with the sociopathic element of our species, life suddenly gets a lot better
    for our own species and all other species.

    That’s what happens when a government allows businessmen to cheat workers, farmers, smaller businessmen and manufacturers by “outsourcing” to cheat laws and social standards.

    I am ashamed of being human being…imagine you were one of those being slaughtered. Animals feel too. If we dont eat meat, they wont slaughter. So, each and everyone who eats meat is blamed.
