English slaughterhouses exposed: JV Richards from Animal Aid on Vimeo.

English slaughterhouses exposed. The public is encouraged to believe that killing animals for their meat is essentially a pain- and stress-free business – so called ‘humane slaughter’. Film shot secretly in three slaughterhouses between January and June 2009 by Animal Aid, exposes ‘humane slaughter’ as a sham. The footage is shocking and often deeply disturbing. For full background on the investigation see


National campaigning group Animal Aid has today released footage taken secretly at three randomly chosen abattoirs, which offers an unprecedented close-up of the true inner workings of typical British slaughterhouses that kill pigs, sheep and cattle. The film convincingly disposes of the myth of stress- and pain-free ‘humane slaughter’. The 40 hours of footage shows more than 1,500 animals being stunned and more than 1,000 being killed. Animal Aid anticipates the revelations will provoke a plain-speaking debate involving consumers, politicians, regulators and the industry.
