The horror of Bad Iburg, the slaughterhouse that had seriously ill and dying cows dragged to their deaths from all over Germany, will have serious consequences for dozens of animal transport drivers and numerous farmers.
So far, authorities have focused only on butchers and veterinarians.

Now and after alleged animal welfare violations in this slaughterhouse, the public prosecutor’s office in Oldenburg has expanded its investigations to include animal owners and drivers.

The agency is now investigating 71 people, as spokesman for the Oldenburg prosecutor, Thorsten Stein, said on Tuesday.

There have been new allegations against 14 farmers, against 38 drivers and ten responsible transport companies. The reason for the expansion of the investigation is the evaluation of video recordings made by animal rights activists from the SOKO animal protection organization in the slaughterhouse.

The accused animal owners are accused of not properly examining injured or sick animals by the veterinarian and having them transported to the slaughterhouse despite their condition.

The drivers are accused of knowing about the injuries or illnesses of the animals and nevertheless having transported them. The police in the Osnabrück district are responsible for the questioning of the accused.



In addition to the new suspects, the public prosecutor’s office is investigating the two slaughterhouse operators, a veterinarian man and a veterinarian woman and five former employees of the company.

It is currently unclear when the investigation will be concluded.

In autumn 2018, activists from the “SOKO Welfare Organization” documented the conditions in the slaughterhouse with secret filming and informed the Ministry of Agriculture.
This filed a criminal complaint.

According to the animal rights activists, cattle were sometimes pulled from the transporter with a kind of winch, tortured with electric batons and beaten. The district of Osnabrück closed the slaughterhouse after the video recordings have been published.

Things are going in the right direction.
But SOKO animal protection always called for the dismantling of the entire network.

The animal rights activist Friedrich Mülln, chairman of the SOKO animal protection, shows with the pictures that the company has systematically slaughtered sick and seriously injured animals. –

Friedrich Mülln: If anyone asks me what was the cruellest thing I’ve ever seen, it wasn’t not China’s fur farms, it wasn’t Hungary’s live plucking or France’s foie gras factories, but an unassuming building in the small town of Bad Iburg in Lower Saxony.

The cows were mostly walking skeletons. The animals were so emaciated that you could really see every bone and vertebra. In about 200 cases, we documented that the general condition of the animals was so bad that they could not even walk.

The flap of an animal transporter opens and the entire floor is full of completely destroyed animals.
These animals were then systematically, hundreds of times, with full consciousness dragged out of there with the cable winch or with electric shocks on their knees.

Bad Iburg was hell of the cattle.
I want to see this case in court”!

And I mean…Before we Germans put a finger on the Chinese or others, we should check our own stables, most of which are apparently hell for the animals, although we supposedly have the best animal welfare laws in the world!

My best regards to all, Venus

  1. So horrible are the crimes that humans do to animals, that it gives me the idea of ​​burning myself publicly in protest. But I won’t, because it wouldn’t stop the criminals for even a moment. I will do my best to change the laws , punish the penalties for which crimes will cease to be profitable.
