10/05/2021 120,000 Pigs Will Be Killed Due To Supply Chain Shortages

A leading UK meat industry body says up to 120,000 pigs could be killed due to ongoing worker shortages. Farmers are concerned that increasing livestock numbers are leading to a backlog that could put animal welfare in disarray. Things are only getting worse: with now thousands of animals at risk of culling. Meat producers and farmers in the UK are pressing the government to solve the ‘gas crisis’, driven by record-high prices that are halting slaughters of animals. Food production is under threat following the gas shortage, and the government is reportedly in emergency talks with meat processors to solve it. Legislation insists all animals must be stunned before slaughter, with some religious exemptions. Many campaigners say the practice is inhumane, and have long called for it to be banned. The Humane Slaughter Association says it causes ‘significant’ distress.⠀Moreover, a figure at Compassion In World Farming told the BBC: “In concentrated carbon dioxide, pigs will panic, try desperately to escape and gasp, before falling down and losing consciousness up to a minute later [according to some sources] and possibly longer.”⠀(plantbasednews.org)
