Interview with the butcher who killed X15
Last Thursday X15, the pig we accompanied video-taping, was killed. In Austria this happens more than 20.000 times per day, in Germany more than 200.000 times and worldwide it happens the incredible number of 5 million times PER DAY!
We were interested in what the particular person feels and thinks by slaughtering and how somebody can kill a living creature anyway.
pig-vision: What do you think, to what extend does an animal suffer while slaughtered? And how this suffering can be influenced in a positive or negative way?
The Animal isn´t suffering while slaughtered.
pig-vision: Can you understand people who disapprove the act of killing?
The purpose of farm animals is to be slaughtered and eaten.
pig-vision: Do you feel self-fulfillment and joy while killing an animal?
Slaughter is a job and no joy.
pig-vision: If you don´t enjoy it, why do you perform this kind of work?
It´s the economic sector of our enterprise.
pig-vision: How do you feel when killing an animal?
I don´t think about it, otherwise I would not have the guts to do it.
