Punish Factory Owners Accused of Slaughtering Horses for Human Consumption

Target: Mr. Charlie McConalogue, Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine, Ireland

Goal: Enforce the immediate closure of food factory where horses allegedly died under cruel conditions.

Hundreds of protesters gathered outside Shannonside Foods Ltd in Straffan, Kildare, in response to disturbing footage aired in an RTE Investigates documentary. The footage allegedly showed serious animal welfare abuses at the facility. Protesters carried placards and called for the immediate closure of the factory, with some hanging ribbons on the gates to remember the horses that allegedly died under terrible circumstances.

The abattoir is currently under a legal notice from the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine, and no animals have reportedly entered the food chain from Shannonside Foods in the past three weeks. Investigations are reportedly underway across Europe into suspected illegal slaughtering and traceability defects among horses killed for human consumption.

Agriculture Minister Charlie McConalogue has vowed that those responsible will face the full rigour of the law, condemning the reported mistreatment as abhorrent and distressing. Horse Racing Ireland and Minister for Finance Michael McGrath have also expressed their outrage and urged anyone with information to report it to the authorities. Demand a thorough investigation and immediate action despite Shannonside Foods rejecting the claims made in the documentary.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. McConalogue,

Recent footage aired in an RTE Investigates documentary has reportedly revealed serious animal welfare abuses at Shannonside Foods Ltd in Straffan, Kildare. The disturbing footage has led to widespread public outcry and calls for the immediate closure of the facility. Protesters have reportedly gathered outside the factory, highlighting the urgent need for action.

The abattoir is currently under a legal notice from the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine, with no animals reportedly entering the food chain from Shannonside Foods in the past three weeks. Investigations are reportedly underway across Europe into suspected illegal slaughtering and traceability defects among horses killed for human consumption.

Your commitment to ensuring that those responsible face the full rigour of the law is commendable. However, immediate action is necessary to close the facility and prevent further alleged abuses. We urge you to enforce the immediate closure of Shannonside Foods and conduct a thorough investigation into the reported animal welfare abuses. Protecting the welfare of these animals is of utmost importance, and swift legal action is essential.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    Absolutely No Tolerance Towards Animal ABUSERS n Cruelty

  7. Every employee should be interviewed under caution -I suspect there is much more to uncover, a very much longer history of animal abuse in this facility. Shut it down, suspend licenses and custodial sentences for everyone involved in this shameful business.

  8. I don’t believe one word of what will be done for justice. What justice? Doing this in the first place is pointing directly at you and you company plus workers as scum of the earth. True filth. there are no reasons unless you are starving to death and everyone is dying. That is not the case. also there are no excuses. Why? killing is not an excuse as there is no excuse for killing and death. You are cheap bastards who care nothing for anything! Maybe fate will allow you to choke. It should!

  9. Death penalty for bastard killers, burn in hell!
    Justice for horses +RIP

    Make sure those responsible are given a suitable punishment, preferably down a dark lane with a baseball bat. Leave their putrid carcasses to rot in the gutter. They are nothing but glorified animal abusers and animal killers.
