The video footage vividly captures their ordeal in overcrowded trucks, abattoir pens, slaughter lines, and the aftermath. As the viewer, you experience firsthand the animal’s perspective – the fear that grips a calf as it scrambles over you, trying to escape the slaughter line; the terror of hearing screams and shouts in the final moments of life; the desperate scramble towards the bars of a moving truck, jam-packed with other filthy pigs, in attempt to catch a breath of air and glimpse the sunlight. This unique and revealing footage uncovers violations of animal protection laws, and it has already exposed the largest slaughterhouse in Israel.
Camera On Animal
See the World Through the Individual’s Eyes
Highly guarded slaughterhouses exposed Using livestreaming technology affixed to the animals’ backs.
We traced their final day – from the confines of overcrowded trucks through to the aftermath of slaughter.
Sentient has pioneered a new technique to expose the most hidden places of animal suffering – the slaughterhouses.
Utilizing cutting-edge cellular technology, we have developed a new undercover investigative approach that illuminates the covert, highly-guarded facilities that are otherwise inaccessible.
Sentient has customized a small, disposable camera, camouflaged and harmlessly glued to an animal’s back, allowing us to live-stream video footage from their point of view.
The visuals narrate their story through their eyes, capturing the sights and sounds of their environment. Each animal fitted with a camera is also given a name.
We’ve leveraged this technology to document the final hours of bulls, sheep, and pigs, turning them into de facto “undercover investigators” within the slaughterhouses.
While animal rights advocates around the world face obstacles, violence, and Ag-Gag laws in their efforts to uncover the harsh realities inside slaughterhouses, this innovative method provides an unfiltered glimpse of the truth.
We are working diligently to share this technique worldwide.
