Prevent Abuse by Installing Surveillance Cameras in All Slaughterhouses

abattoir-chevaux-by-L214

Target: French Agriculture Minister, Stéphane Le Foll

Goal: Install surveillance cameras in all slaughterhouses in order to prevent more cases of extreme cruelty.

Footage has emerged of animals being horrifically abused at yet another French slaughterhouse. Footage of a slaughtering facility in Mauléon-Licharre shows sheep reportedly being bled while still conscious, and Easter lambs less than 45 days old being hacked and butchered alive. This certified-organic abattoir, which slaughters “local produce” and also bears the “red label” specifying that animals are not battery-reared, proves that meat production is always a cruel process, whether cage-free, local or organic.

Similar acts of cruelty have been filmed at two other slaughterhouses in Alès and Le Vigan in Southern France by animal rights group L214. It is time the government takes immediate action to thoroughly inspect the country’s slaughtering facilities through the installation of CCTV cameras in all abattoirs. Sign this petition urging France’s Agriculture Minister to take urgent action on this matter and to also take steps to encourage farmers to move towards plant-based and cruelty-free food production.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Minister Foll,

Shocking acts of cruelty have been filmed in the Mauléon-Licharre abattoir. This footage shows animals being bled and butchered while still conscious.

It is high time you took action to ensure the transparency of these facilities. Please guarantee the constant monitoring of all slaughterhouses across the country by urgently installing CCTV cameras in abattoirs nationwide. In light of these disturbing acts, I also urge you to encourage France’s farmers to move towards plant-based and cruelty-free food production.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    FRANCE BE ASHAMED. I thought you had laws/intelligence. I was wrong. Ignorance and barbarism abounds. Prosecute these workers! Please!

    This should apply to slaughter houses in the United
    States, too!

  5. This should have been mandatory years ago. This is a place of business just like anywhere else of business that have cameras required by law so why don’t they have them? Slaughterhouses all around the world are notorious for abusing animals cameras should be mandatory at all of them. These people who work at these places get paychecks and there should be rules and regulations to follow just like at all other businesses. It’s a job that should demand respect and certain conduct just like anywhere else when working. Cameras can monitor that and can help keep all employees under control. Animal abuse is a felony in a lot of states and countries. Slaughterhouse employees should not be getting by with abusing animals. Videos will make them think twice before kicking an animal in the gut or knocking it upside its head with a iron pipe. Who in the hell do they think they are anyway? What makes them so dam special to be able to get by with animal abuse! When the cameras catch’em abusing animals….fire their asses. Simple as that and it will save a lot of animals from cruel suffering.

    R.I.P ALL ANIMALS XXXXXXXX
