Carey Bros Abattoir

Pig and sheep slaughter

Hidden cameras capture the brutal reality of a typical Australian slaughterhouse.

More Information

Coinciding with the release of the footage on 8 April 2019, a large protest was held at the Carey Bros slaughterhouse near Warwick, QLD.

Brad King of Farm Animal Rescue, speaking from outside: “After seeing this footage it’s absolutely clear to me that fear and suffering are inherent to slaughterhouses… These animals are squirming in terror as they watch what they’re next in line for. There are numerous occasions where they’re not stunned properly, but even when they are, the footage unequivocally demonstrates that it’s impossible to ‘humanely’ kill an animal who desperately doesn’t want to die.”

Take Action

In the Victorian Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act (POCTAA) and equivalent legislation in other states, farmed animals are specifically exempt from protections afforded to other animals. We are calling on state governments to remove this exemption to ensure farmed animals can be legalled protected from cruelty. In their capacity to suffer, they are no different to the cats and dogs we share our homes with. They deserve to be protected in the same way.
