Slaughterhouse Videos

Animal Aid rallies for cameras in slaughterhouses.

The UK animal-rights organization Animal Aid is campaigning for supermarkets sell only meat sourced from slaughterhouses that are fitted with closed-circuit television (CCTV) cameras. The initiative comes after an Animal Aid investigation in 2009 gathered film footage of animal cruelty in six of seven British slaughterhouses. The Food Standards Agency is also lobbying to strongly encourage the installation of video cameras at UK slaughterhouses. As a result of the 2009 investigations, one supermarket dropped a slaughterhouse contract, and Animal Aid is hoping to see that trend continue if the slaughterhouses fail to install CCTV cameras.
