Meat and Livestock Australia estimated that 21.2 million lambs would be sent to slaughter in Australia in 2019. Despite the industry wanting us to believe in a “humane” slaughter method this is far from the truth. The animals suffer and die a terrible death. Although stunning is a requirement for lambs and sheep slaughtered in Australian slaughterhouses (with the exception of Kosher killing) the stunning process is often not effective and the animals have their throats slit and are left hanging upside down to bleed out while close to or fully conscious. Recent footage captured and leaked from CCTV cameras shows the reality of what takes place for sheep behind the walls of the slaughterhouse.
