Exposing Australian slaughterhouse cruelty

** BREAKING: South Australia's largest pig slaughterhouse exposed on new 'Aussie Abattoirs' website **

Two months ago we released world-first footage from inside the gas chambers used to 'stun' the vast majority of pigs killed for food in Australia, filmed at the Corowa Abattoir in NSW. The footage was incredibly disturbing, but the pigs' reactions could only just be seen in the bottom corner of the screen.

The footage from Big River Pork, near Murray Bridge SA, is much clearer; and truly damning of what is considered the most "humane" method of slaughtering pigs. The footage also shows the final moments of sows, who after 3-5 years of being confined and repeatedly reimpregnated, are no longer useful to the industry and are sent to the gas chamber to be killed. The pigs are forced into the chamber by use of an electric cattle prod.
