“YES…Now that’s what you call a victory! I actually admire this company for immediately sacking those responsible & even more so; for bowing to Animal Rights pressure & having CCTV installed.”
“People…this sort of abuse goes on in many slaughter-houses, but those companies don’t want us, their CUSTOMERS, to know about it, which is why they are shitting their pants & want Ag-Gag bills to be introduced, to PROTECT THEM; WHY? Why should they be protected & thus allowed to carry on abusing animals??”
“DON’T WE the public have a right to know what happens behind slaughter-house doors?? YES! But if I went undercover to film animal abuse, I would then be CLASSED AS A TERRORISTS…who when caught would be treated like terrorists & face serious jail time!!”
“WHAT THE HELL DOES TAKING A VIDEO OR GOING UNDERCOVER TO EXPOSE ANIMAL ABUSE HAVE TO DO WITH TERRORISM? The only thing that remotely links us to the word “Terrorists” in any Dictionary is;” being part of a group” I’m no more of a terrorist than I am a duck!!”
“Inghams does not tolerate the mistreatment of our livestock,” company CEO Kevin McBain said in a statement. “A full investigation of the incident at Tahmoor processing plant is ongoing.”
The group said 140 hours of footage was handed anonymously to the animal rights group several days ago.
It was unclear whether a worker was responsible for placing the hidden camera inside the abattoir, according to Animal Liberation spokeswoman, Emma Hurst.
Ms Hurst said she had identified in the footage 136 instances of animal cruelty and aggravated animal cruelty – which was classified as cruelty that was so bad it led to the animal’s death, or injuries so severe it would be cruel to keep the animal alive.
“You can see a total disrespect of these animals. There are scenes where they’ve put the music up very, very loud, the workers are screaming, jumping about, dancing, picking up the turkeys, dancing while holding onto the turkeys, throwing them onto the shackles, and just that whole mentality as though these animals don’t have feelings, that they’re objects.”
One veterinarian asked to review the footage and prepare a report for the animal rights group told ABC’s Lateline that it was “among the worst [cases of animal cruelty] I’ve ever seen”.
