Germany: Horror on Six Floors – In the Pig High-Rise are Held up to 3000 Animals!!


It is suggested that you watch the videos first via the following link.  The text and spoken is in German which many will not be able to follow – but the videos say it all anyway.


Here below is the link to the second video:–im-schweinehochhaus-werden-bis-zu-3000-tiere-gehalten-7897712.html#mc-0_1521093539936

Venus has very kindly given us the following data; complete with a translation; so that more can be learned about this 6 storey pig hell hole.

Here is the message which Venus has worked hard on.


Dear Mark,

Here is a documentary about the Horror House of Pigs on six floors, in Halle, Germany.
I’ve translated the text from the video, so everyone understands what it’s about.


The following text accompanies the video recordings made by the association “German Animal Protection Office” (Deutsches Tierschutzbüro) in the pig tower in Maasdorf / Halle since 2013:

“Imagine being locked up in a high-rise against your will, you cannot move or turn around. The only change you have is a step back and a step back. Again, and again you are artificially fertilized, you do not know what is happening to you. But gradually you realize that you will be abused for years as a production machine. Your children will be snatched from you. Some of your defenseless and innocent piglets are even savagely beaten to death because they are worthless from the point of view of the local people. None of your children will ever see you again. You are in pain, but no one cares about you. They are afraid and desperate, but nobody is there for you! “.

The story and the description of video.


End of the sixties in the former German Democratic Republic (DDR) the pig high-rise was built as a prestige object.
Today it is the only high-rise building for pigs in Germany and in Europe at all. It is located on Maasdorf, in Halle.
3000 pigs are being kept under illegal and horror conditions.
A veterinarian said, “Such pictures belong to the prosecutor. They make me angry “.

In 2013, the chairman of the association “German Animal Protection Office” Jan Peifer went for the first time to the pig high-rise, in Maasdorf, and documented the hell in which 3000 pigs live.
“The pigs had absolutely no room to stretch out, they could not even turn. They could only lie “.
In 2015/2016, the animal rights activists released the horror pictures from the video. The cause for sharp headlines: “mess in pig high-rise building”, “Officially prescribed animal abuse?” “Shock videos from the pig high-rise”!
Green Agriculture Minister Claudia Dalbert gets the videos in front of her eyes. She said in an interview: “I can tell you that under my aegis, it can no longer be tolerated. A lookout must not give “!! Until today has not happened.

At 1.12. In 2017, that means a few months ago, the animal rights activists did what the minister did not do, that is, looked closely. From minute 3:26 you can see the “changed” conditions yourself: employees beat the piglets on the ground, you can hear screams.

It is forbidden under German law to kill animals like that.
The legal and prescribed way of killing pigs is to hit them on the head with a wood until they become unconscious. Then cut their throats so that they will bleed.
Instead, the pictures document illegal hitting on the floor, and not just once!
On 25.01.2018 it was tried to kill 15 piglets the way you can see on the video.

Operator of the yard is the HET GmbH.
Stern TV, who aired the video on March 14th at 10:00 pm, tried to get in touch with the managers of the pig high-rise building.
Jan Peifer, together with the journalist, tried to obtain information from the central office of the company.
“There is no responsible person today” says the woman at the window!!! (Video)
“We do not give any comments anyway, you do not need to bring that shit on TV, and you can turn off the camera.”
Angrily she slams the window and shows the middle finger to the people, although she knows that the interview is on TV.

The skyscraper specializes in the production of pigs.
The documents show how the farm operates on 6 floors: up to 500 pigs with their piglets per floor fit and are transported by lifts.

On the second floor they are artificially inseminated.
Then they come to the fifth floor, where they are kept with other pregnant pigs. One week before the calculated birthday, they either come to the 4th or the 6th floor, to farrow !!!

In these tight boxes, they give birth to their piglets.
They suckle for the next few weeks, after which they are taken to the 1st or 3rd floor, along with others and kept in groups, until they are finally sold.
But where?

It is pointed out that the company operates another business called “Genesus Deutschland GmbH”! –  This company specializes in production and distribution of pigs. On their company page, they advertise with images, such as those you see in the video on minute 7:38.

But the video recordings from the skyscraper show a different reality.
From minute 7:58 you can see how the piglets are born.
You can see from 8:02 minutes what will become of the animals when they are just born: their feet are stuck in the holes, they cannot get out alone, but no co-worker is there to help. The animal rights activists were able to free some. You can see piglets that could not free themselves from the amniotic sac. Piglets who die!

The operator of HET GmbH does not want to comment on these allegations.
Inquiries to interviews remain unanswered.

In an interview in 2014, the operator assured that all regulations are met, and speaks of “control without end” !!!

From minute 9:05 we see the “control without end” !!!

From this point on, you can hear and see how employees still deal with the animals to this day.
In German it is insulting expressions that are difficult to translate.
One sees the injuries to the body of the animals, which are caused with a spatula, also an illegal method for animal driving.
The veterinarian ends her participation in the interview, with the words: “the respect for the animal is not here at all. The case belongs to the prosecutor”.

with best regards

Remembering Lynsey and Jill


Live Transport New Video – One SAV Commentator Expresses The Views Of So Many EU Citizens.

Our recent post (and views) on the new video.


The Directorate-General (DG SANTE) has been set up to improve the health and safety of European citizens and to boost consumer confidence.

But only now does DG SANTE remember that there has been a regulation since 1/2005 that clearly states how animal transport should be done?

No! Of course not! – For the EU Commission is much too smart!
Now the anger of the population has become strong fury against the irresponsibility, the inaction, the ignorance of the animal transport authorities.

And soon the EU elections will come.

That is why the Directorate-General has downgraded animal transport to a school subject.

For those who did not know that there has been an EU animal transport regulation since 2005, now they have a chance to know!!

These General Conditions for the Transport of Animals have been in place since Regulation 1/2005 was introduced some 14 years ago:


-The animals must be transportable!

-qualified staff

-Transport as short as possible, without delay

-sufficient floor space and standing height

-Suitability of means of transport

-suitable loading and unloading equipment

 -the needs of the animals must be taken into account

– adequate care of the animals

Non-transportable animals are:

Injured animals and animals with physiological weaknesses or pathological conditions these are particular
-Animals that cannot move painlessly or without assistance or have large open wounds / severe organ prolapse
-Perient animals in advanced gestational age (90% or more)
-Mothers whose birth was less than 7 days ago
– Newborn mammals whose umbilical wound has not yet completely healed.
-All this is well known, at least for those who have made videos that prove anything but compliance with the rules.

And now we come to the central question: why this farce?
Why the degradation of the problem to a shameful principle: “we have done everything to inform the public.”?

DG SANTE has 42 departments, with DG G alone, 8 departments.

All these are paid to tell us that “the egg has a yellow centre”?
What does the Directorate-General think we are, stupid?

For years manure has been documented in animal transports of organizations and activists: surplus driving hours, injured animals while driving, no water, no food, no doctor, no compliance with EU Regulation 1/2005.

So what’s the popeye version of the thing?
But the smart management has thought of all these questions
Theoretically, this farce video is meant for truck drivers.

-Drive smoothly. Oh! I didn`t know it !!

– Start the ventilation system when shutdown. Oh! I didn`t know it !!

-refresh cattle by watering them. Oh! I didn`t know it!

And if all that does not happen, as reality shows, then truck drivers, inspectors, customs officers, personnel are guilty, all who do not yet know the Popeye video.

Not those who do not punish anyone, those who ignore the true ones and the terrible videos, those who hide the sum of money to say

we cannot do anything, we cannot keep the laws, we can only make comic videos“!!

Gentlemen, a shame is the EU Commission, including DG SANTE, all that is a shame!!

Just a few minutes ago, I have the answer to this ridiculous comic video from Animals Angels Blog. Once again.
I do not translate that on purpose.
EU is Germany, there are certainly high-paying translators who need to do it.

And not only to despise EU citizens and to consider them stupid!! 



Any wonder why ? – the UK sees through the farce of EU cow poo; and gave their opinion in a democratic vote.










The fight for the rights of animals is the fight for life.

The fight for the rights of animals is the fight for life.


Dear Mark,


This text is dedicated to all who fight every day for the rights of animals, for a better world for animals.

My personal thoughts and feelings may also touch other activists.

I hope so.

At the end of each month I make a statement: I look back and see a bunch of animals that I could not save.
The suffering of the animals destroys me, I admit it.
The exploitation, the injustice, the indifference of others, the stupidity.
Every day a fight that drag me to the limit of despair, hopelessness.
The only thing I master perfectly is the mourning.
This fight has left its tracks.
I got hard.

The crimes have made me hard.
I do not compromise, I do not forgive killers.
I have learned to count on my powers, not to trust anyone.
Only the practice teaches me hope.
Without hope there is no fight.
Without fight there is no hope.

“Who fights can lose. Who does not fight has already lost”!
I learned to lose but not to give up.
I’ve learned to set limits, priorities, where is a path, where does it end, where are my own limits.
I have learned that my fight is what sets me apart from the others.
I see this difference in the eyes of those who stare at me with gratitude, in their faces, I hear that in their cries.
I see that in the faces of those I managed to save.
In the moments of despair, I remember all the lives I have saved, the joy in their faces, how many animals I have given the right to live.

These are moments full of love, liberation, moments of justice.
The joy in the eyes of the animals that I have saved, that makes the difference.
That gives an answer to all questions.
For my own existence, which confirms it and gives it meaning.
I know why I live and that without me less hope, less joy would be for our fellow animals.

Bertold Brecht said: “He who has rights is respected. Who has no rights is despised “.
We do not despise anyone, we fight for everyone’s rights.Our fight has the aim of recognizing animal rights.
And this fight deserves every sacrifice, every pain, every effort.
It is the fight for life.
Because we love life.

My best regards to all

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
