What Happens Inside a Standard Pig Slaughterhouse in Europe?
Watch what happens inside one of the largest pig slaughterhouses in Belgium. Can we even start to imagine what the pigs are feeling?
Belgian citizens and indeed most Europeans, are under the impression that the meat industry in Europe is heavily regulated and that the animals are being treated "humanely". However, this could not be further from the truth. The meat industry tortures billions of animals all over the world, and Europe is of course of no exception.
In this video we can see how conscious pigs are being boiled alive. This happens because many animals are not properly stunned because of time constraints or because they've managed to move their heads. As a result, many animals enter the processing stage while they are conscious.
