Regardless of size, the quality of facilities and equipment, or the advances made in the mechanization of the process of killing, slaughterhouses represent one of the largest and most systematic forms of violence against animals, even when the rules that regulate the process are respected. Stunning methods are subject to the animal's resistance and the skill of the employees and are not always effective. The result is that many animals will suffer whether these procedures are effectively applied or not.These images are part of an investigation carried out in 58 slaughterhouses in Mexico.
