Petition supporting mandatory CCTV in slaughterhouses gets strong public backing

Comments Off on Petition supporting mandatory CCTV in slaughterhouses gets strong public backing

A petition launched by the World Horse Welfare charity that demands mandatory CCTV in slaughterhouses licensed to take horses, has been signed by 43,737 members of the UK public before being handed to the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra).

According to a news report on the matter, the campaign was initiated to ensure that the public and horse owners are confident that equine slaughter is carried out humanly. It has been quite successful, as it received the backing of public figures such as BBC Formula One presenter Lee Mckenzie, British Olympic equestrian sportswoman Mary King and three-day eventing elite sportswoman Pippa Funnell and husband William.

Despite the strong public support for this petition, Defra’s response on the matter was not particularly forthcoming, a Defra spokesperson arguing that “CCTV is not the most effective monitoring tool. There are more effective ways to ensure animal welfare standards are upheld. We’ll be keeping the need for compulsory CCTV in slaughterhouses under review.”
