Illegal Slaughterhouse

Still operating one year later: sheep killed without stunning

One year after being reported to authorities, a new covert investigation reveals the illegal slaughterhouse is still operating at Koo Wee Rup, east of Melbourne.

More Information

The original 2019 footage, which shows sheep being brutally slaughtered without stunning, some of whom attempt to escape with their heads half removed, was provided to Andy Meddick, Animal Justice Party MP for Western Victoria, after an anonymous source provided it to Aussie Farms.

Meddick made a formal complaint to Primesafe, the Statutory Authority that regulates the safety of meat, and is calling for the facility to be completely closed down and for those responsible to be prosecuted.

Meddick also says the release of this footage could not have come at a more crucial time, as it shows the importance of the work animal activists do, yet a parliamentary inquiry is being held in Victoria which could potentially increase penalties for whistleblowers.
