Cyprus Life – in pictures vs Fylde Coast Musings

Our new life in Cyprus began in early March 2004. Originally from a small mill town in Heywood, Lancashire (United Kingdom) we moved overseas spending a glorious 12 years in Limassol. Feel free to read my posts and view my many #photosofCyprus. However in 2016 we had to return permanently to UK due to family ill health. We're now living on the Fylde coast where the river Wyre meets the Irish sea in the north west of England. More places for us to discover as this part of the UK is not so familiar to us either.

Caught on camera – Cruelty to pigs by staff at Cheale Meats Ltd UK

Leave a comment


Video footage shows distressing images of cruelty to pigs at Cheale Meats Ltd, Elmkirk slaughterhouse (UK).

We’ve just seen this (actually, I wouldn’t watch it as I love pigs) on Sky News and are both stunned to hear the people who are quite clearly shown in the video footage cannot be prosecuted by DEFRA due to it being obtained by campaigners who were trespassing on the premises.

All I can say is “shoot the bastards, hunt them down and make their lives a living hell”

The video shows them burning with cigarettes, punching the pigs in the face and hitting them in the face with cricket bats.

Isn’t it enough the pigs were there to be slaughtered in the first place?

What a sick world we live in. I’m just so upset after this, it’s totally senseless.

The UK should take action against this company immediately and boycott any meat from Cheale Meats Abbatoir. If they want to continue to allow this activity to take place and turn their backs against it – let them continue and face the consequences of having no business left to run!

The Food Standards Agency says it has revoked the licence of one slaughterman in the footage and increased the level of monitoring at the plant.
