The worst incidences in animal slaughter occur in slaughterhouses where line speeds are increased.  Gail A Eisnitz in her book ‘Slaughterhouse’ talks of pigs surviving the stunning process and having their throats slit, then being dumped into scalding water fully conscious and wounded to drown.   High speed slaughterhouses will cause more of this kind of thing to happen, causing endless suffering to innocent and helpless animals, and putting  even more pressure on the fragile mental health of slaughterhouses workers.   The buying public could end up eating contaminated meat.   There is only one step forward for the slaughterhouse industry, in America and worldwide, and that is to wind down until full closure is achieved.
