I visited the Beirut River months ago and the smells there are horrible. I also passed by the slaughterhouse and there was no one there to supervise the place. Everything is dirty around it, anyone could go in and there are people who actually live there.
This is what Compassion in World Farming said after visiting the Karantina Slaughterhouse.
“The slaughterhouse is chaos. Everything is coated in a layer of blood, faeces and body parts. The slaughter area is heaving with people, live animals and slaughtered bodies. The sounds and smells are overwhelming.
Men grab defenceless sheep by the fleece or back leg. They fall to their knees and are forcefully dragged, one by one, to the slaughter line. Cattle are dragged by ropes around their necks. When they try to resist restraint they are yelled at and beaten viciously with metal rods. The animals are visibly terrified and in their frantic attempts to escape they slip, trip and fall, slamming their heads into the concrete floor.
Groups of sheep are forced to jump over dead bodies and wide gutters full of blood. They desperately try to force their way away from the bodies of other sheep they have just watched being slaughtered. Cows are left suspended fully-conscious by one leg for long periods of time, their faces resting in pools of other animals’ blood. They watch animals being slaughtered all around them. I wonder if they realize it will soon be their turn?”
I’m turning vegetarian after reading this. Mjadara w bass!
Me too. that’s horrible
Vegetarian is the way to go..poor animals we treat them like shit everywhere in this country. It’s about time animal activists and NGO’s push for animal rights laws, it’s pathetic how bad it is.
How about going vegan? There’s a lot of abuse in the dairy industry. Plus, the dairy industry directly supports the veal industry. I’d recommend you research it.
How about eventually getting it a point where you don’t even need to eat to live..here’s the link: http://english.pravda.ru/society/anomal/13-05-2010/113360-indian_yogi-0/
There are plenty of other examples and videos out there of many other people doing the same thing.
Compare those cows to the ones from a Lurpak commercial.
That’s just sickening
its nice eat it bitchz i only eat happy meat imported or cat meat aka lahm bi ajine from furm mmmm so delicious !
Check the link below.this is the proper way to be slaughtered,the cow must not know that it will be slaughtered, knocked from behind on the head.
The meat will stay tender not contracted(due to stress and tense feeling), and not acidic due to the adrenalin in the blood when afraid.
This slaughter house MUST be closed today.
becoming a vegetarian is another case:)
