Humane Slaughter Exposé

An undercover investigation reveals factory farm conditions at an organic, “humane” slaughterhouse.

This week, British animal welfare group Animal Aid released undercover video revealing that a purported organic, "humane" slaughterhouse confines and beats animals and does not follow humane slaughter practices. Animal Aid chose the slaughterhouse because it is certified to the highest standard in the UK, and it received humane slaughter certification from organic, eco-conscious farming group Soil Association. Inhumane practices caught on film mimic the worst violations committed on factory farms, from extreme animal confinement and abuse to slaughtering conscious animals. Critics of organic farming are calling the investigation proof that certified organic meat is no more ethical than meat produced by factory farms.
