At just a fraction of her natural lifespan – still a baby – she is marched down the chute to the ‘kill floor’. There is nowhere she can turn, run, or hide. She has been taken from her mother, terrified and confused. What awaits her when it is ‘her turn’ is something most people don‘t ever want to see, but she will be forced to endure.
In a slaughterhouse, where efficiency is key for industry profits, there is no such thing as ‘humane‘.
Undercover investigations capture the distressing final moments of animals in slaughterhouses.

Many animals are killed while fully conscious, including ‘bobby calves’ discarded from the dairy industry at just a few days old.
