Filed under: Animal RightsAnimal CrueltyCow

Props to undercover film makers!

An Australia has moved to halt the supply of live cattle to three Indonesian abattoirs after a documentary Monday revealed evidence of cruelty against animals shipped there for slaughter.

The documentary, A Bloody Business, has footage of cattle suffering, including having their eyes gouged, tails broken and throats hacked in four slaughterhouses in Indonesia.

After viewing the footage, the Australian livestock export industry body LiveCorp said it had asked the Indonesian industry to stop supplying Australian cattle to three of these facilities.

Viewers of the documentary described the scenes as horrific, disgusting, shocking and unbearable to watch.

There are some clips from the documentary in the video above. We only suggest watching it if you have a strong stomach.

We wish the animals made it to safety!
