“Apologies” after secret footage of halal killing showed workers HACKING and SAWING at sheep’s throats leaked

Three workers and the boss of a halal abattoir have admitted causing unnecessary suffering to sheep as they were being killed following a three-year battle to bring the case to court.

Shocking undercover footage of slaughterhouse brutality at the Bowood Lamb abattoir near Thirsk, North Yorkshire, in December 2014 provoked a public outcry.

The secret filming by Animal Aid showed workers ‘hacking and sawing’ at animals’ throats, as well as sheep being kicked in the head and hurled into metal walls.
