A rabbit meat and fur farm franchiser has put in another application to erect a rural worker’s dwelling and agricultural building, complete with ‘intake and skinning area’ (in other words, a rabbit slaughtering facility).

Animal Aid, whose investigation into horse slaughter in the UK, featured on BBC One’s Panorama, has today released further footage showing the slaughter of ponies.
The harrowing footage shows tiny ponies being herded into the kill room.
In one particularly upsetting scene, the slaughterer shouts to the workers in the butchery:
“Don’t cut this little one’s legs off. They’re having him whole.”
Many of the tiny ponies who we filmed were shot in sight of one another, watching helplessly as their companion collapses to the floor in a sea of blood, faeces and urine.
Animal Aid is campaigning to bring an end to horse slaughter in the UK. The root of the problem is unregulated breeding of all types of horses – from feral ponies right through to thoroughbred horses from the racing industry.
To combat the problem, Animal Aid has launched a parliamentary petition, which calls for the government to intervene and place a limit of the number of horses bred every year, as well as lifetime funding for all horses. Fewer horses being bred means fewer unwanted horses and an end to horse slaughter in the UK.
Says Fiona Pereira, Campaign Manager at Animal Aid:
“Watching tiny ponies being shot in the head, often in front of one another, is one of the most heart-breaking things I have ever witnessed. It truly is the slaughter of the innocent.
We desperately need to reach 100,000 signatures on our government petition in order to trigger a debate in parliament – which we hope will result in parliamentary action to put a stop to this horrific practice.
We can bring an end to this – but Animal Aid can’t do it without the help of the public. Please, please sign the petition.”
