With reference to the article about the sentencing of the two slaughterhouse men who were filmed inflicting unnecessary cruelty on animals in their care, I am very pleased these two individuals are going to feel the full force of the law.

Too often we see sickening scenes of cruelty to animals, particularly recently to pigs going to slaughter.

These are intelligent animals, as intelligent as our pet dogs.

They should be treated with care as they face their final moments.

I hope the men don’t get off lightly and they are never allowed to work with animals again.
