Happy Meal ? – A Report From Venus On The Dark Side Of MaccyMeat In Germany.

Dear Mark,
I recently got an undercover video from the well-known organization Soko, which do undercover investigators in Germany.
It’s about the OSI- slaughterhouse in Tauberbischofsheim that the McDonalds delivers with meat.


Especially those who still eat meat from this shop should watch the video.

But I think even of all meat eaters would turn their stomachs when they see the pictures!.
I have translated much of the documentation from German to English.

Maybe it makes sense to spread the video in the US


In the links that follows, you can see the undercover recording, as well as the interview with Friedrich Mülln, the head of the organisation, on television.

 SAV Comment – Unlike attempts in the USA, Europe does not have an ‘ag gag’ system where guys who obtain this kind of undercover footage get imprisoned rather than the animal abusers whop do the deeds in the first place !

A must see for all Happy Mc Americans

And here is the Translation

If we are already slaughtering animals for our food, then at least so that they do not suffer. Every meat eater would sign this sentence. And the laws also dictate how the animals should be treated in the slaughterhouse in order to spare them unnecessary suffering.

If cattle are hung on the hooks for insufficient numbness, this is not intended.

Also not that the animals are maltreated with electric drivers on sensitive parts of the body or exposed to special violence.

But such events have documented activists of Soko animal protection in an OSI slaughterhouse in Tauberbischofsheim.

OSI is an international meat supplier, from which McDonald’s exclusively sources the burger patties for German branches.

In order to get to the pictures, cameras were hidden and if possible Minijobber undercover in slaughterhouses introduced.

The photos of the animal rights activists show how employees of the slaughterhouse repeatedly violate the animal welfare slaughter ordinance and torture the cattle before the slaughter.

“Worse pictures can not be imagined. In my view, slaughtering should be stopped there immediately and staff should be exchanged, “states Dr. Kai Braunmiller, Chairman of the Federal Association of Meat Hygiene, Animal Welfare and Consumer Protection, the recordings.

Animal rights activist Friedrich Mülln denounces the conditions in German slaughterhouses as a whole:

“This is the fourth detection of Soko animal welfare within a year.” The conditions are catastrophic. “Slaughterhouses in Germany are a lawless area and a total failure of the entire system,” said the organisation founder from Soko Animal Protection. It is true that again and again violations of the Animal Welfare Battle Ordinance become known, most recently the animal rights activists uncovered abuses in a slaughterhouse in Düren, from which McDonald’s also took meat.

The operator of OSI, Erik Schöttl, did not want to say anything concrete about the recordings.

According to the veterinary office, the immediate closure of the abattoir Tauberbischofsheim has been ordered. Apart from animals already delivered at the slaughterhouse, no animals may be accepted and slaughtered there anymore, wrote the district office Main-Tauber-Kreis. This rule applies until the operator submits an appropriate catalog of measures and the implementation is checked by the veterinary office.

McDonald’s then announced to clarify the grievances actively and adjust the meat reference through the relevant slaughterhouse. “From our point of view, the slaughterhouse shots we have received contain serious miscarriages in the slaughterhouse, which is unacceptable to us, and we have had the meat from that slaughterhouse temporarily closed until further notice,” the company explained Company written.

 

To what extent this will bring about an improvement in the future, is questionable – the recordings with the serious violations of the animal welfare battle ordinance were also created under the supervision of officially appointed veterinarians. This is also shown by the pictures of the animal rights activists.

Anyway and until further notice the State Administration of Baden-Wuerttemberg and after the inspection of the Veterinary Office has closed the slaughterhouse.

The head of the organization SOKO and activist Friedrich Mülln gave an interview on February 14, on television: He said: “The McDonalds should not be really surprised!

After my many years of experience in undercover investigations in German slaughterhouses, I have to say one thing: “in Germany there is a total failure in the matter of ‘slaughterhouse’!!

Within five years, it’s the fourth scandal. No! that’s no exception, it’s the rule. If any people from Eastern Bloc are hauled here to work in the slaughterhouses and live below subsistence level, then one becomes dull from the first day. Those people are not to blame, the system and the consumers who power this system are to blame.

The tape is running, the tape never stops, you are controlled, and only counts what is cheap.

Basically, consumers make power this system to these crimes.

We can not wait for the agency or higher authorities to make any changes”, so Freidrich Mülln from Soko Organisation.

 

Best regards to you and all

Venus
