I suggest a campaign about ...

CCTV to be made compulsory in UK slaughterhouses.

Following Animal Aid's detailed investigation into UK slaughterhouses, the campaigning group is calling for mandatory CCTV to be installed in all abattoirs. This must be made law ahead of January 2013 when new Regulations - which will not allow the UK to improve upon existing measures - come into force. Already, the supermarkets are on board. Now we just need to persuade the government!

        It is bad enough that these animals are slaughtered in the first place but to add to their distress with cruelty and disrespect is shameful and cowardly.

        It is imperative to the welfare of these animals that CCTV is present in all slaughterhouses and it is our responsibility as humans to ensure that all acts of cruelty do not go unpunished, we should all embrace this proposal, slaughterhouses included!!!

        If the companies and employees follow the law and adhere to correct and humane procedures, then they have nothing to fear from CCTV. CCTV will help maintain high standards of animal welfare and ensure that people who break the law are caught and prevented form carrying about further abuse.

        Following footage of abbatoir staff kicking pigs in the head and generally mistreating animals in what is already a stressful situation I welcome any measure that can promote changes in attitude towards animals awaiting slaughter and the wider issue of animal welfare

        Why do slaughterhouses prefer to keep their activities hidden? Surely this calls into question what goes on inside?

        In absolute agreement with this. In theory my MP should be as she is allegedly anti any abuse or cruelty towards animals

        let's weed out those how enjoy abusing and torturing from those who are there to do their job and treat the animals with dignity and compassion

        This is so important and vital for the future well being and protection of animals in the meat industry.

      • DeniseDenise commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        It should be compulsory for all abattiors to have CCTV fitted. If the staff treat the animals properly then they should not be worried about being filmed. The first time a staff member mistreats an animal it must be instant dismissal. Until these people learn that there job is on the line they will continue to try and get away with treating animals inhumanely. I also agree with the comment that states that no animal should be slaughtered without pre-stunning. I get very annoyed that the practice of killing animals without stunning is not clamped down on, I thought it was against the law to be honest, the government should do something and not be so scared of offending anybody.
