Video Shows Horse Slaughterhouse Guilty of Abuse

Undercover footage exposes United Kingdom horse abattoir Red Lion for abuse and illegal slaughter procedures.

Last week, horse DNA was found in Tesco hamburgers, and now United Kingdom horse abattoir Red Lion has been exposed for cruel practices. Footage collected by the Hillside Animal Sanctuary shows horses struck with sticks and the illegal practice of slaughtering a horse in front of others; Welfare of Animals Regulations 1995 states horses may not be visible to one another during slaughter because of the psychological stress it causes the animals. Craig Kirby of the UK’s Food Standard Agency says, “The FSA takes animal welfare at slaughter very seriously … and take action when we see breaches of the legislation." Two of the abattoir’s employees lost their licenses.
