The slaughterhouses for animals in general are environments nightmare for an animal lover as we are and I have lost the number of petitions who i have signed against employees's abuse on animals before slaughter.
I think a normal person, isn't at ease to kill living beings during their entire duration of the working day.
So I think that people who work in slaughterhouses are people without any sensitivity, lack of culture, they make reckless and careless actions , even if they are causing pain or terror for animals.

It is egregious that these animals are being slaughtered in the first place but then to make matters even worse they are being horribly abused and hurt before this awful fate for these noble friends who have served men so faithfully in so many capacities for centuries!
I keep wondering when will mankind ever become civilized and stop his terrible abuse and exploitation of other beautiful sentient beings on their planet too!

For every action there is a reaction. According to the law of karma, if we cause pain and suffering to other living beings, we must endure pain and suffering in return, both individually and collectively. We reap what we sow, in this life and the next, for nature has her own justice. No one can escape the law of karma.

I would never want any animal to be abused. Im SO tired of seeing videos of animals being abused by workers (imagine how many arent being videotaped) and nothing happens to them. Why arent people there stopjng it???
I say this all the time, if I EVER saw an animal being abused, ESPECIALLY when they couldnt defend themselves, I would HAVE TO open a huge can of whoop ass and that would be that. I am not a violent person, but I will protect the innocent. Period.
put these two in a cage and let them go at each other.
