Horrific Cruelty Filmed in Kosher Slaughterhouses

Posted By on September 19, 2019


In July 2016, undercover investigators from
PETA U.S. and Anonymous for Animal Rights traveled to South America to expose one of
the cruelest industrial cattle slaughter methods in the world. It’s known as “shackle and hoist.” Paraguay is the seventh-largest exporter of
beef in the world. Forty percent of all the kosher beef eaten
in Israel comes from Paraguay. This is “shackle and hoist” kosher slaughter
at the Frigochaco slaughterhouse. Workers electrically prod terrified cows into
a squeeze box, where they chain one leg. The bottom then drops open, causing the cows
to plunge to the kill floor. Workers then hoist the struggling cows by
their chained legs and swing them into place. To wrestle the cows’ heads into position,
workers grab them by the nose with a metal hook and pin their heads to the floor with
a sharp pronged tool called a “devil’s fork.” Using the “devil’s fork,” they wrench
the cows’ heads back, exposing their throats for the ritual slaughter cut. Teams of kosher slaughterers are sent from
Israel to South America. Up to 80 percent of the kosher meat exported
to Israel comes from slaughterhouses that use “shackle and hoist” methods. Even after the cow’s throat is cut, the
worst is still to come. Hung upside down, many cows are still fully
conscious while bleeding out, some for over two minutes. But workers start cutting into them, despite
the fact that they can still feel pain. This cow remained alive and conscious for
several minutes during this process. One worker plunges a spike called a “puntilla”
into the back of the head to sever the spine. But this just immobilizes them and doesn’t
kill them or render them unconscious. After previous PETA investigations, the Chief
Rabbi of Israel promised to phase out “shackle and hoist” slaughter and declare the meat
to be “non-kosher.” But as this new investigation has exposed,
these promises have not been kept. Why continue to kill animals in such a primitive
and cruel way? The answer may surprise you. It’s not for religious reasons, because
there are other methods of kosher slaughter that use more modern equipment and cause less
suffering. Rather, “shackle and hoist” slaughter
persists because it’s faster and cheaper. This calculated cruelty allows slaughterhouses
to kill more than 90 cows per hour. “Shackle and hoist” slaughter is almost
twice as fast as less agonizing methods. This is the hidden cost of cheap kosher meat. The cows are paying the price. Shockingly, representatives of the Chief Rabbi’s
office previously defended the kosher status of “shackle and hoist” beef, declaring
that “gratuitous cruelty” does not “disqualify the meat” as kosher. In other slaughterhouses in South America,
this “gratuitous cruelty” was on full display. At this plant in Argentina, a major exporter
to Israel, investigators documented the tools of the trade up close. Kosher beef from South America, produced with
these methods, is still being imported into many other countries around the world, including
the U.S. And since a large percentage of meat from
kosher slaughter is sold as non-kosher meat, this should concern every meat-eating consumer. To take action, go to PETA.org, and please,
choose vegan and eat with a clear conscience. Thank you.

  1. Maybe use a giant sliding axe to chop off their heads so they can die instantly without having to suffer prolonged agony ?

  11. The moment that shocked me the most was after they got cut, they were still moving
    This is worse than cruelty. Its absolutely inhumane.

    Just make it as painless as possible, or don't touch them because you don't know how to do your damn job.

  15. Listen… I know it’s the way of life.. but this? This crap is just heartbreaking! As a collector of animals and an animal LOVER and I know a lot about them, this is a NO WAY at all ANY animal should die, at most, they should die peacefully in a beautiful patch of grass having a smile on their face as they go, not a terrified look in their face as they are slammed in the group and stomped on until they let go!

  18. I kill 2000 cows per day in a much better way but when I do make a mistake it is illegal and every time I have to hope the government employees do not see it we get shut down. Cows live for more than 2 mins after neck is cut they can live for over 10 mins that way if someone doesn't sound out and reshoot it soon enough. If we don't catch the mistake quick enough the cow will suffer easily 10 mins hanging upside down, shot in the wrong spot, neck cut, tail cut off, and front legs cut off before one of us reshoot it.

  19. To clear up the spike in neck thing. When you stab or in my case shoot a cow in the back of the neck it is to shut the lungs off.

  20. saddest video i've seen. not surprised in the slightest. i know so much worse cruelty is happening elsewhere all the time. if you have the privilege to be educated on this topic, then why wouldnt you go vegetarian/vegan? it's a question of ethics and prioritys sadly.

  21. What we see is cruel but this is the way its been since the beginning of time. You may not like it but that's just the way things are. I am not taking sides I'm just stating facts.

  22. These people are hideous. It’s just horrifying. It would have hurt so badly. Just imagine being that poor cow, getting your throat slit open, blood constantly spilling out, and hung upside down in unpredictable pain? These people deserve to burn in Hell. They’re literally STANDING. IN. THEIR. BLOOD.
    I feel so bad for the poor cows. The pain. I can just feel it. Their little eyes, begging for help. It just makes me tear up. The sound of the cows ‘howling’ hits my heart so hard. I feel so bad. At one part of the video i could see the inside of their throat, blood spilling out.. I was completely horrified. Although I eat meat, I still feel bad for these poor animals. They should die in peace. Not to be abused. I’m done with this disgusting, clownish behaviour. What has happened to us? I’m not vegan, and i will never be vegan, but I’m sure that every animal killed for food should be killed peacefully. This is just torture.

  23. cruelty to the animal renders it forbidden disqualifies it in halal method it mus not see another animal be slaughtered must not suffer etc it makes the meat forbidden
    modern industrial slaughter methods make it almost impossible to be halal i

    iv worked in a slaughterhouses and raised objections to violations of humane halal methods ..the animal must not be pregnant either as its a waste of the unborn life .i always reported and made a stand against violations …

    it made tears in my eyes when i saw such violations especially when an animal had been slaughtered while pregnant and then i have to remove the lambs from the stomach when this happend i made sure whole slaughter was stopped an animals inspected again thouroughly ..this infuriated me as it should have been done first ..this is the result of modern commercial greed

    realistically people will always eat meat however its important to have humane workers in slaughterhouses ..iv witnessed unfeeling i will call them bastards really who just dont care not neccesarily cruel for cruel sake but careless this happens in every modern slaughterhouse native european /kosher etc ….

    i think there should be some kind of pyschological testing for slaughterhouse workers as i notice the people who are unfeeling to animals are unfeeling selfish and rude cruel to people aswell
