Secret slaughterhouse video reveals brutal treatment of pigs in Cambodia

Undercover footage shows workers among hundreds of pigs, clubbing animals before slitting their throats.

Campaigners are calling for animal welfare reform in Cambodia after exclusive footage of an open-air slaughterhouse revealed the brutal treatment of pigs.

In the undercover video, taken by British animal rights campaigners Moving Animals, hundreds of the animals can be seen huddling together watching others being killed in close proximity.

Shirtless workers approach each animal in pairs. One clubs the pig’s head multiple times with a metal rod before sitting upon it to prevent it from moving. The other worker then slits the pig’s throat.
