Demand Mandatory Cameras in Slaughterhouses

Target: Paul Ryan, United States House Speaker

Goal: Demand the United States place closed-circuit cameras in slaughterhouses.

Thousands of animals are cruelly mistreated in slaughterhouses in the United States. They are manhandled, forced to live in their own filth, and sometimes even die before they make it to the slaughter room; one of the latest videos capturing these conditions showed piglets being castrated or having their tails removed without being anesthetized first.

This is unacceptable. Regardless of their fate, animals raised for slaughter are still living creatures who deserve to be treated humanely. There are rules and regulations in place to protect these creatures, but they are not enough, as it is still easy for a slaughterhouse to deny any accusations of cruelty without the evidence to back them up.

The United Kingdom has finally passed a law requiring cameras in their own slaughterhouses, and it is time for the United States to do the same. Sign this petition to demand mandatory closed-circuit cameras be placed in all United States slaughterhouses.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Speaker Ryan,

Despite the laws and regulations set in place, slaughterhouse workers still abuse thousands of animals by manhandling them and forcing them to live in their own filth. Some of these animals die long before they make it to the slaughter room, and the filthy conditions could lead to the meat produced becoming tainted by bacteria and parasites.

Laws and regulations are no longer enough. The United Kingdom recently passed a law requiring closed-circuit cameras in their slaughterhouses, and it is time for the United States to do the same. You must support and approve the use of closed-circuit cameras in these establishments, to send the message that any and all animal abuse will be caught on video and will not go unpunished.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    I cannot imagine how someone can abuse an animal, and when it is in terrifying fear for its life. Don’t tell me that they are people who need a job and this is the only thing they can find. No, that doesn’t account for their sadistic actions. Worse yet, the folks who profit from this business. They are even more repugnant!

    I encourage anyone to cut out meat from their diet or only buy humane certified. Yes, you pay a bit more, but we eat way too much meat and bad meat at that! Do yourself a favor and get healthy and save animals from abuse. Ultimately, we support these abhorring practices by buying the end product.
