Make CCTV mandatory for all slaughterhouses

This petition had 6,637 supporters

Properly monitored CCTV would deter abuse, encourage best practice, help with staff training, and provide evidence for prosecutions.   

Animal Aid investigated nine randomly chosen UK slaughterhouses and found breaches of welfare laws in eight. Animals were shown being kicked, slapped, stamped on, beaten, punched, burned with cigarettes, and picked up by their fleeces and ears and thrown into pens. It showed inadequate, botched and multiple stunning, and the sadistic use of stunning equipment to ‘punish’ animals.

Neither the government-appointed on-site vets nor the slaughterhouse operators detected a single illegal act that we filmed.
