Illegal slaughterhouse

Illegal slaughterhouse

Location: Beatties Road, Koo Wee Rup VIC
Last known status: Open and operating

Hidden camera footage, which shows sheep being brutally slaughtered without stunning, some of whom attempt to escape with their heads half removed, was provided to Victorian MP Andy Meddick in late July 2019 after an anonymous source provided it to the makers of Australian documentary Dominion, Aussie Farms.

Meddick made a formal complaint to Primesafe, the Statutory Authority that regulates the safety of meat, and is calling for the facility to be completely closed down and for those responsible to be prosecuted.

Meddick also says the release of this footage could not have come at a more crucial time, as it shows the importance of the work animal activists do, yet a parliamentary inquiry is being held in Victoria which could potentially increase penalties for whistleblowers.
