Australian Animals Tortured at Israeli Facility

New footage released by Anonymous for Animal Rights reveals appalling treatment of Australian animals shipped to slaughter at an Israeli operation.

Footage of horrific animal cruelty at an Israeli slaughterhouse, which receives live shipments of animals from Australia, has been recorded by undercover journalist Ronen Bar and released to the media by Anonymous for Animal Rights, an Israeli animal-protection organization. In the disturbing video, Bar narrates the blunt instructions he received from management during his time at the operation, while images of injured cows being dragged, tortured, and slaughtered while fully conscious play. Upon learning the animals in question were shipped from Australia and the operation approved by an Australian auditor, The Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and Animals Australia have condemned the facility due to its clear violations of animal-welfare standards.
