Breaking: Our covert cameras capture appalling scenes of slaughterhouse incompetence and chaos at Farmers Fresh, Wales

Posted on the 2nd September 2019

This is the 16th slaughterhouse in which we have filmed, but the first one located in Wales. Once again, we have brought to light evidence of blatant staff incompetence and brutal treatment of animals.

This was further amplified by an extremely fast paced slaughter-line. Investigators filmed in Spring and Summer of this year.

We brought to light many concerning issues including workers pinning down and cutting the throat of a sheep who appears fully conscious, and a stun-man picking up a sheep by her fleece and neck and hurling her down the slaughter conveyer line, whilst shouting. Another worker grabbed sheep by their throats or fleeces and threw them backwards into the conveyer, often with an audible crash.

We believe this provides vital evidence that makes the case for mandatory CCTV to be introduced across Welsh slaughterhouses to bring Wales in line with England and plans proposed for Scotland.

Without our covert cameras in place, this horrendous situation may have continued, unchecked for some time. Join us in calling on the Welsh government to introduce independently monitored mandatory CCTV without delay across Wales.
