Slaughter

We're concerned that the way in which many farm animals are handled and killed is not good enough to adequately safeguard their welfare.


It is vital that animals are handled considerately and killed humanely, which includes being stunned effectively so that they remain unconscious and cannot feel pain, before being slaughtered.


All farm animals deserve a humane end to their lives, and we’re working in a number of different ways to try to ensure this.
