Shocking animal abuse in PP.

Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

Shocking animal abuse in PP.

Post by whiteribbon » Mon Apr 09, 2018 9:55 pm

Slightly old news but this was posted 4 days ago by Peta Cambodia on Twitter and picked up today by PPPost.
It "shows shirtless men viciously beating pigs over the head with metal pipes before cutting their throats" in a Phnom Penh slaughterhouse.
But when shown to Ministry official Sen Sovann he said he was outraged and will take action when he finds out where the video was taken!

The full story can be found here: https://www.phnompenhpost.com/national/ ... ouse-video

Just wondering, what is the approved humane way of killing animals in a slaughterhouse?
... give 'em a quick, short, sharp shock ...

In the UK it used to be a bolt gun to the skull.

Rapid death with minimal suffering. Definitely not the way as shown in the video. Wouldn't cost the slaughterhouse that much to buy some stunners and separate the animals so they don't have to go through so much stress before being killed. I love my meat but this video makes me puke. The suffering they bring upon these animals in this video is absolutely unnecessary.

The Chinese skin donkeys alive because they say the adrenaline improves the flavour. Lovely people, wonderful culture.

It's an incredibly inefficient way of slaughtering them, chasing round after them trying to conk them on the head a dozen times. It'd be a lot quicker and easier to line them up and bolt them.
