What Do Animals Feel Before Slaughter?
Do animals in slaughterhouses know something terrible is going to happen to them? In this heartbreaking video we can see scared and terrified animals as they try to fight for their lives.
It is said that there is no humane way to kill someone who doesn't want to die. And indeed, when we watch this video, it is easy to see how truthful this statement is.
It is also worth noting that the majority of the animals who are brought to slaughterhouses start to experience anxiety, fear and even pain, as soon as the transportation process begins.
For example, smaller animals such as chickens or turkeys are usually picked by their legs or wings and thrown into the transportation crates. This violent handling many times leads to broken bones. Larger animals who are not kept in crates, can panic which may results in injuries including broken legs.
This video is a short excerpt from Philippe Radault's documentary, ''À L'ABATTOIR" (52' - 2015).
