Agricultural Minister: Mandatory CCTV footage in abattoirs

We continue to be shocked and appalled at the way Australian animals are treated overseas. But animal cruelty is happening everyday in our own country. This needs to stop and people need to be held accountable for their actions. The abuse of live turkey recently uncovered in Sydney is just another step too far for the meatworks industry. If these companies won't adhere to their own policies, they NEED to be held accountable. They have had their chance to operate in an ethical manner, and continually fail. Charitable organisations work to show us this abuse and it is just the tip of the iceberg. I believe CCTV will help us rid the country of this kind of animal abuse.
