Act against abattoir cruelty

To: British Veterinary Association, Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons, DEFRA, Essex Police

We the undersigned veterinary surgeons and veterinary nurses are appalled by the cruelty and incompetence shown in this video.

We feel the refusal to prosecute is for spurious reasons based on inertia and timidity rather than legal precedent.

We urge your organisations to make urgent representations to MPs to make the installation and routine monitoring of CCTV compulsory in all pre-slaughter areas of licensed abattoirs in the UK.

Because of the presence of indisputable evidence not only will the incidence of cruelty be minimised but successful prosecution will be inevitable.
