Farm Transparency Project investigators have captured the pain and terror that is routine for pigs in slaughterhouses across Australia. Now, the shocking practice of suffocating pigs inside gas chambers has been given the urgent attention it deserves in not one but two ABC 7.30 reports.
The first ABC 7.30 report aired on the 27th March 2023 featured world-first footage taken by Farm Transparency Project investigators from within three Australian pig slaughterhouses. The incredible footage made clear just how much pigs – whether factory-farmed, free-range or RSPCA Approved – suffer in cruel carbon dioxide gassing systems. It was later reported that Coles and Woolworth source pig meat products from the slaughterhouses featured in the story. These sensitive, intelligent animals were filmed screaming out in fear and pain, and gasping for air. This is the pig industry’s way of killing as many animals as possible in the shortest amount of time. Watch the full in-depth story here:
