‘We’ve got a cow to shoot next’: What death in farming really looks like – video


The Guardian’s Richard Sprenger steps inside a farm, an abattoir and a knackers yard to see how the industry deals with dead and dying animals, and what that says about our own humanity. The welfare of farm animals is well regulated in the UK, but in many cases these animals still suffer traumatic, messy deaths through sickness, injury or the lengthy process that leads to the abattoir. It’s an area of farming that we rarely think about, let alone see but the safe disposal of carcasses takes many forms

WARNING: This video contains footage of dead animals and animals being killed
