Cows skinned alive

r1 ...


When driving on the highway, have you ever caught a glimpse of trucks with animal snouts and eyes peering through the narrow slats? Have you ever wondered how these animals are put to death for our consumption? A recently released video provides an answer that has shocked many across the country.

The video, taken at Ryding-Regency Meat Packers in Toronto, shows cows hoisted upside down, dangling from one leg, appearing to be still moving while workers tear off their skin with knives.

Toronto Pig Save started a petition demanding that the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) withdraw Ryding-Regency Meat Packers federal licence and shut them down — more than 33,000 people have already signed. If you agree, please sign and share today.

Armaiti May, a California-based veterinarian who watched the video, commented: “I was horrified to see fully conscious, alert cows writhing and flailing in agony as the blood drained from their slit throats.”

Canadian law requires that all federally-registered slaughter establishments ensure that all species of animals for consumption are handled and slaughtered humanely — it is illegal to hoist a conscious cow, like the video shows.

If people don’t act now, advocates say countless animals will suffer abuse, pain and gruesome deaths. You can put pressure on CFIA to shut down the Ryding-Regency slaughterhouse by signing the petition.

Thank you for taking action,

Julie Byrnes Canada
