At Bowood, which is owned by English father and son, Robert and William Woodward, and produces non-stun meat for the Halal market, sheep were kicked in the head and face; picked up by their ears, horns, fleeces, throats and legs, and hurled onto the conveyors; smashed headfirst into pallets; and turned over and thrown onto the conveyor upside down. One worker turned a sheep over and, while holding her by her throat, pulled back a fist as if to punch her. Another kicked a sheep in the face before standing on her neck and bouncing up and down. She wriggled free and hid in a corner where the worker left her to suffer. Animal Aid has reported Bowood Yorkshire Lamb to the Food Standards Agency, which has suspended three men’s slaughter licences and is building cases for prosecution.
