"Humane slaughter" at Corowa NSW abattoir

  • For context, the whole process is shown between 0:00 and 1:46 from the different angles. Pigs are herded into a cage within the gas chamber by an electric cattle prod. The cage door shuts behind them and they are lowered into the gas. Once the cage reaches the bottom of the chamber it comes back up the other side and tips the pigs out onto the shackling table, and the cage then returns to the original position. There are 5 or 6 cages in the chamber, each taking an average of 3 pigs at one time. Approximately 2000-3000 pigs are killed each day in this highly mechanised, impersonal manner.
  • Many different instances are shown of pigs suffocating within the chamber - these are taken from roughly one hour of footage. The footage of the rest of the day shows exactly the same suffering. They are clearly panicked; thrashing and screaming for air (some instances show this clearer than others).
  • Several instances are shown of pigs being forced into the gas chamber. Many more instances are available, most show excessive use of the electric prodder, and the clearly panicked reactions of the pigs who often will try to jump out of the race rather than go into the chamber where they can hear other pigs suffocating. A few incidents of note:
    • After one pig has tried several times to jump out, the worker uses the electric prodder on his face, then holds it inside his ear for 12 seconds while the pig screams.
    • The worker jabs the pig in the face with the electric prodder multiple times; the door to the chamber doesn’t even seem to be open as more pigs are shortly afterwards let into the room.
    • A large tumour/growth can be seen on the underside of a pig. These growths are seen many times in the footage of the shackling table, which has not yet been released.
    • A lame pig crawls into the room; it appears as though one or more legs may be broken or injured. Using the electric prodder the worker tries repeatedly to get him to enter the gas chamber, before jumping in, kicking him in the neck, and trying to push him in from behind. Eventually he gives up and tosses the pig aside. For the next 12+ minutes, the pig lies there getting trampled by the other pigs entering the chamber. Eventually the pig is forced into the chamber and dies like all the others.
    • After repeatedly trying to force a pig (out of view of the camera) to take the final steps into the gas chamber, the worker tries to force the door shut on him, but he escapes back out. The worker turns the prodder around and smacks the pig with the handle, then zaps him out of anger (the door to the chamber is closed).

Largest piggery in the southern hemisphere, Corowa NSW 2014

The Corowa Piggery is made up of 5 modules, each of which is essentially a large, self-contained farrow to finish piggery. Footage and photographs were obtained by anonymous activists inside 3 of the 5 modules, depicting industry-standard cruelty such as:

  • Cutting piglets' tails, teeth and ears at a few days of age without anaesthetic
  • Confining pregnant and lactacting sows to tiny cages in farrowing crates
  • Dead and dying piglets within farrowing crates
  • Sows with wounds and injuries including prolapsed vaginas

A Day in the Life of a Sow

"A Day in the Life of a Sow" - one day inside an Australian farrowing shed, compressed to 5 minutes.

See the enriched and interesting lives they have? They get to stand up, lie down, eat, and... that's about it.

This is one day. They're kept in those cages for 6 weeks at a time.

Gonna Cut You Down

What's done in the dark will be brought to the light...

As 2013 comes to a close, we look back at the campaign so far and give a hint of things to come with a strong message to Australian animal abusers, set to the tune of Johnny Cash's "God's Gonna Cut You Down".

Blantyre Farms: Golden Grove Piggery 2013

Handheld and hidden camera footage from Blantyre Farms' Golden Grove Piggery near Young NSW, filmed covertly in 2013.

Blantyre is owned by Edwina Beveridge. The investigation at Blantyre discredits the lies commonly spread by the industry about farrowing crates, tail cutting, the move away from sow stalls, and the supposedly welfare-oriented goals of Australian pig farmers.
