November 23rd 2016: Explosive video evidence from inside a major Victorian slaughterhouse uncovers the shocking and systemic abuse of animals born into the meat and dairy industries. Hours of harrowing footage reveal a system failure so bad, it has every caring Australian asking the question: how could this happen here?
Over 1,000 videos were sent to authorities cataloguing abuses to cows, week-old calves, goats and sheep. But one pig suffered worst of all. She was still conscious after being struck four times with a captive bolt gun. She thrashed and moaned, desperate for help or mercy, as workers stood over her swearing, and even laughing at her pain. Then they shot her, twice. Her ordeal at the hands of these slaughterhouse workers lasted longer than six agonising minutes.
