Menzel's Meats, Kapunda SA

Menzel's Meats is a multi-species slaughterhouse in Kapunda, South Australia, which kills pigs, goats, sheep and cows/cattle.

Unlike larger slaughterhouses, Menzel's does not use a gas chamber for pigs. Instead, for smaller pigs, sheep and goats, an electric stunner is used, while larger pigs and cows are shot with a rifle.

Pigs are herded with an electric prodder into a stunning pen, and then painfully paralysed one at a time, in front of each other. Some pigs try to comfort those who have been paralysed.

Many animals remain conscious after 'stunning', but unable to move.

The fifth slaughterhouse exposed as part of our Shut Down Slaughterhouses campaign.
