Scott David exposes the horrors of high speed slaughterhouse kill lines


  On this edition of Your Call, we speak with Scott David, who has filmed footage exposing animal abuse at slaughterhouses for the animal rights group Compassion over Killing.


The Trump administration wants to increase the slaughterhouse kill lines for chickens and pigs. At some slaughterhouses, 140 chickens and 21 pigs are killed every minute. David exposed the horrors of a high speed pilot program after working undercover inside of a pig slaughterhouse. What do we need to know about how animals and workers are treated in slaughterhouses and factory farms?
