WARNING: SOME OF THE VIDEOS BELOW SHOW DISTRESSING SCENES OF ANIMAL SUFFERING AND SLAUGHTER. DRAVV BELIEVES IT IS NECESSARY TO SHOW WHAT THE REALITY OF LIFE AND DEATH IS FOR FARM ANIMALS, BOTH IN THE UK AND ABROAD, (SINCE VAST AMOUNTS OF MEAT AND FISH PRODUCTS ARE IMPORTED). IF YOU ARE UNDER THE AGE OF 18, OR ARE EASILY UPSET BY SUCH SCENES, THEN PLEASE SEEK ADULT ADVICE OR DO NOT CLICK ON THE LINKS.

A video released by PETA and narrated by Sir Paul McCartney....can anyone still eat the flesh of these animals after knowing the facts? More than 900 million animals and birds are slaughtered for food in the UK each year, and in excess of 70 billion are killed each year around the world. This global figure is set to nearly DOUBLE by 2050.




So, surely animals raised and killed in the UK are protected from suffering by legislation and enforcing agencies? Think again and watch the video below produced by Viva. All scenes are from British farms and abbatoirs.




...and these are the types of people entrusted to kill as quickly and humanely as possible! Both were caught by covert surveillance, but how many get away with it? CCTV should be required in every abbatoir.




Pate Fois Gras: not legal to produce in the UK as it would breach animal welfare legislation, but still legal to inport and sell, e.g. Fortnum & Masons in London, and online from Amazon
