Slaughterhouse workers face the music this week

LanguedocLiving, Sep 17

Slaughterhouse workers were on trial on Monday for the abuse of animals in Mauleon-Licharre, Pyrénées-Atlantiques, where they were secretly filmed in March 2016. The workers were filmed butchering animals while they were still alive and conscious.

The workers and the Director have since retired. They are being charged with mistreating animals and not following regulations.

The trial continues.
