A fire at the slaughterhouse left hundreds of cow carcasses rotting overnight- they were disposed of this morning. Discarded without any regard. These animals suffered an entire life only to be slaughtered and thrown in the garbage.
An unbelievably horrific reality. An unborn calf fetus hangs from a dumpster outside a Toronto slaughterhouse.
What you are seeing is the routine disposal of the skinned and spray pained heads of dairy cow mothers, their guts and insides and unborn fetus calves. This unbearably gut-wrenching footage is not to turn you away- I simply cannot stomach this alone.
A devastating scene. A skin truck left open as the driver washed the blood off the outside of the trailer. This is a scene witnessed around slaughterhouses around the world- every single day. Ask yourself if leather is worth this?
Blood spilt of innocent animals. This is chaos; bloodshed and carnage.
A vicious reality many refuse to acknowledge yet consume every single day.
Horrific footage features mothers and babies: Dairy cows freshly skinned flesh ripped off of cows and loaded into truck to be transported down the street to the tannery.
Cow's freshly skinned flesh hangs dripping blood out of the side of a skin-truck. The tannery is conveniently located just down the road beside this slaughterhouse in Toronto Ontario. The truck drives like this on public property just down the street where the skins are unloaded, washed and treated to become leather products.
The driver didn't mean to leave the doors open and panicked when he saw me with my camera. He quickly scrambled to park and get out of his truck to close the doors to hide the horrific scene he was hiding in the back of his transport truck.
Truck full of bloody cow skins being loaded until traveling to tannery down the road. These skins are transported from the slaughterhouse kill-floor into the truck. Body heat still rising.
Blood pools outside slaughterhouse and drips into water drain outside. Blood drains from the slaughter-house just after skin-truck pulled away. The blood circles in pools of water before eventually draining into Toronto city water drains outside.
Do you know what "rendering" is?
Rendering is the process that converts "waste animal tissue" (heads, legs, hoofs, fats, and bone) into both "edible" and inedible materials.
Right now, this truck is driving the cow's remains to the rendering plant where they will take these "edible fat materials" and heat them with steam then separate the fat from the bone with boiling water. The final product that these animals have been reduced to will be used in human food products and pet foods.
