RSPCA criticizes pork deaths in slaughterhouses as ‘highly humane’

The RSPCA Condemned for calling Pigs To kill in Slaughterhouses On the basis of “welfare”, after the farmers start killing themselves Animals Due to a shortage of labor in slaughterhouses.

Lack of labor in slaughterhouses and supply chain disruption leading to swelling recession Pigs In the fields.

About 120,000 captive bolts and corpses are expected to be disposed of instead of going to the food chain. The National Pig Association says the killing has begun on a handful of farms.

Boris Johnson dismissed the concerns Animal welfare, Saying the pigs will die anyway.

But the RSPCA urged the government to take immediate action “to protect animal welfare and support British farmers.”

The charity says slaughterhouses are specifically designed to kill animals, and firing thousands of healthy pigs in the yard “can be extremely difficult for even skilled experts”.

However, animal-welfare experts Compassion in World Agriculture Slaughterhouse slaughter is preferable to death, where most are poisoned by high concentrations of carbon dioxide, causing immense pain and “inhuman” death.

“CO2 causes ‘severe respiratory distress’ – in the words of a scientific paper,” said chief policy adviser Peter Stevenson.

“You can see the pigs Hyper ventilating, struggling for breath And trying to escape the gas chamber.

Said Mr. Stevenson Independent: “I definitely disagree with the RSPCA. I’m not suggesting that slaughtering on a farm is a good thing, but high levels of CO2 use cause immense pain. It mocks the term ‘human slaughter’.

Emma Slavinsky of the RSPCA, which has previously lobbied against carbon dioxide use, said: “Slaughterhouses are specifically designed to kill animals. Shooting thousands of healthy pigs on a farm can be very difficult for even skilled experts.

“Pigs are intelligent, large and strong animals, weigh as much as an adult man, and getting a clean shot is difficult for skilled experts.

“Farmers want to do the right thing and take their animals to slaughterhouses, where they can be more humanely slaughtered.”

Mr Stevenson acknowledged that it was not easy to accept dazzling pigs with a captive bolt, but said that if properly carried out it would instantly make them unconscious, which would be “highly desirable” for carbon dioxide.

Alternative methods include lethal injection and electrical astonishing. He said: “If done correctly, it will cause immediate unconsciousness.

“To me, the debate is not about slaughter on the farm or in slaughterhouses, but rather reveals the fact that in most cases the common slaughter of pigs is terrible.

In 2003, the Farm Animal Welfare Council advocated stopping carbon dioxide use in five years. But instead, Mr. Stevenson said the use of “inhuman” practice was on the rise.

A spokesperson for the RSPCA said Choti wants to ban CO2 and urgently develop humanitarian alternatives.
