Animals often arrive severely injured at the Turkish slaughter houses, unable to stand or walk and suffering horribly. Yet they are forced to walk to the area where they’ll be slaughtered. Using a chain, they are then hoisted in the air by one leg only to have their throats slit without being stunned first and while still fully conscious.
Eyes on Animals does its utmost to convince these Turkish slaughterhouses stunning the animals prior to slaughter has significant advantages.
We are trying to convince them that they need stun guns and that, with the financial aid of some Dutch and German slaughterhouses, we can supply these and teach the workers how to operate them.
For now, we’re trying to at least convince them hoisting a fully conscious animal by one leg is extremely cruel and unnecessary.
