HISTORIC: France Passes Bill Ordering Cameras In ALL Slaughterhouses

The French National Assembly passed a bill for mandatory cameras in all slaughterhouses from 2018

French parliamentarians Thursday night mandated video surveillance in slaughterhouses from 2018 following revelations about shocking conditions. The vote to monitor slaughterhouse practices and workers for animal cruelty and safety violations passed 28 to 4.

Before it is brought to the Senate in March to be passed into law, the measure will first be trialed in over 250 slaughterhouses, placing cameras in areas where animals are “moved, held, immobilized, stunned and killed.” 

Footage would be held for one month, although it is not clear how much access the public would have to the video film. At the very least, animal protection professionals as well as government and slaughterhouses management officials would be able to use the footage.

The move follows public outcry after a series of shocking undercover investigations were released to the media by the French animal rights organization L214.
