Animal welfare organization Animal Rights reports serious abuses in a pig slaughterhouse in Tielt, Belgium. Pigs are beaten by staff, kicked and dragged by the ears. Animals that are unable to walk after transport are dragged out of the trucks with chains around the legs, says Animal Rights.
The slaughterhouse violates the food regulations. Animals arriving dead at the slaughterhouse are still butchered. That is prohibited. Moreover, workers cut the earmarks of live pigs off to cover up their foreign origin. The slaughterhouse thereby is circumventing export legislation.
The slaughterhouse is the largest in Belgium and handles 25,000 to 35,000 pigs per week. Part of that goes to the Netherlands. According to director Molenaar of Animal Rights the meat goes to dozens of upmarket and quality butchers in the Netherlands.
Animal Rights filmed for a month long undercover at the slaughterhouse. In a video on the animal welfare organization’s website one can see the images. The slaughterhouse is part of the Debra-Group, one of the largest pork slaughter and production companies in Belgium. Animal Rights wants to force the company to close the slaughterhouse through legal action. …
Supermarket chain Delhaize has stopped cooperation with the slaughterhouse immediately. A spokesman calls it unacceptable that the company does not respect animal welfare.
