Abattoir in Sydney

I'm not sure if everyone has seen the news about the absolutely terrible cruelty uncovered at an Abattoir in Wilberforce, western Sydney?

If not here's the story, absolutely shocking http://www.smh.com.au/environment/anima ... 1rx7w.html I didn't watch the footage, I can't, I've seen enough animal suffering to last 10 lifetimes and don't need to see it.

Realising we had a go at Indonesia... it's time we cleaned up our country instead of pointing the finger all over the place at other ones.

Animals Aust have a petition asking for all Abattoirs to be fitted with CCTV, my opinion is yes we should... sadly not all are what they're supposed to be and for those of us using Abattoirs we don't want our animals tortured to death we want them to go painfree and stress free.

Here's the petition for those interested in signing: http://www.animalsaustralia.org/take_ac ... hterhouses

Hi,
I've heard about the story, but can't bear to watch the links. I just commented to my husband that I'm glad I don't buy meat from the store. :(

Hi Heidi,

Yes I said the same to DH and I am soooooo glad we used Casino, and I know what happens there.

It's hard to comprehend people doing such things. I didn't look at to much visual, I just have seen too much over too many years and can't look any more.

:D
