Chickens boiled alive at Star Poultry Supply abattoir in Melbourne, secret footage reveals.

A Melbourne abattoir has been allowed to continue operating despite being investigated for possible animal cruelty, after secretly recorded footage showed it boiling chickens alive in its slaughter process.

7.30 has obtained footage of hens being boiled alive at the Star Poultry Supply slaughterhouse in the suburb of Keysborough.

The video was secretly recorded earlier this year by animal rights campaigner Tamara Kenneally and a group of friends.

The abattoir slaughters egg-laying hens that are considered "spent" when they are 18 months old.

Industry regulations require chickens to be stunned and then immediately killed by a slit to the throat.

They are then plunged into a scalding bath designed to strip off their feathers.

However, the footage shows many chickens still conscious when they are dipped into the boiling water.

"The footage is extremely horrific and very distressing to watch," the RSPCA's chicken welfare specialist Kate Hartcher said.

Agriculture Victoria said authorised officers spoke to the company's management, but did not initiate a formal animal cruelty investigation.

I wonder if The Chinese have a vested interest in the company. http://fairdinkumnewschat.com/mad.gif

Obviously not being stunned properly and not having their throats slit properly.

The problems need to be fixed pronto.

Chooks flap their wings etc for a while after their head has been chopped off, they are not conscious at that stage, as far as I know.

Correct Alicia - at least the one's that I butchered as a child behaved that way.
