Abattoir Truth: Animals Boiled Alive, Abused & Slaughtered
An abattoir, any abattoir, is a nightmare for animals. An undercover investigation by Animal Liberation reveals how animals are killed inside a modern abattoir near Adelaide, Australia. Pigs, baby calves and lambs, all tortured in horrific ways before being violently killed.
Abattoir truth: unbearable suffering for animals
In this video, filmed at Strath Meats abattoir, we can see workers throw live pigs inside boiling water. In theory, these miserable pigs are supposed to be unconscious. In practice, many are stunned badly and thrown to boil to death when conscious, as can be seen by their moving legs and screams.
In addition, the video also shows how fragile calves and lambs are thrown around and violently handled, even before their agonizing slaughter. Overall, the misery these animals endure, before and during their slaughter, is beyond hideous.

Even though it sounds insane, the killing of calves is essential for the production of dairy and meat. The images are hard to watch, but it is vital that people see them.
Most pigs in Australia, as well as in several countries in Europe, are killed in gas chambers. A hidden camera shows what it looks like on the inside.
