CCTV to be introduced in all slaughterhouses in England in 2018

CCTV to be introduced in all slaughterhouses in England in 2018

CCTV recording will become mandatory in all slaughterhouses in England next year, Environment Secretary Michael Gove has today confirmed.

Defra will take the plans forward following an extremely positive reaction from the industry, welfare groups and the public.

In August, the Secretary of State launched a consultation on the plans to deliver a manifesto commitment for CCTV to be required in every slaughterhouse in England in all areas where live animals are present, with unrestricted access to footage for Official Veterinarians - reassuring consumers that high welfare standards are being effectively enforced.

Legislation will be introduced in the New Year, coming into force in the Spring. All slaughterhouses will be required to comply following an adjustment period of up to six months.

A summary of responses published today (Sunday) shows that of almost 4,000 respondents, more than 99% were supportive of the plans.

Environment Secretary Michael Gove said:

We have some of the highest animal welfare standards in the world and want to cement our status as a global leader by continuing to raise the bar.

The reaction to this consultation highlights the strength of feeling among the public that all animals should be treated with the utmost respect at all stages of life and be subject to the highest possible welfare standards.

These strong measures also provide a further demonstration to consumers around the world that as we leave the EU we continue to produce our food to the very highest standards.

Having carefully considered all of the responses, the Government agrees with the overwhelming proportion of respondents that were in favour of mandatory CCTV to protect animal welfare in slaughterhouses. The proposals will also give the Food Standards Agency's (FSA) Official Veterinarians (OVs) unfettered access to the last 90 days of footage to help them monitor and enforce animal welfare standards.

The FSA has strict processes in place for the approval of slaughterhouses, and specially trained vets carry out checks to make sure the welfare of animals is protected throughout their time in the slaughterhouse. If breaches are found, a slaughterhouse can be given a welfare enforcement notice, have its staff's licences suspended or revoked, or be referred for a criminal investigation.

The RSPCA's Head of Public Affairs David Bowles said:

This is a very welcome and crucial step towards introducing higher welfare right across the food chain.

We applaud the Secretary of State for his steadfast and focused commitment to ensuring the highest possible animal welfare standards in the UK once we have left the EU.

The RSPCA looks forward to seeing the details of the proposal as issues such as where the cameras will be located, footage quality and storage, and who can have access to it are essential to making the legislation meaningful.

British Veterinary Association Senior Vice President Gudrun Ravetz said:

The mandatory installation of CCTV is a vital tool to ensure high standards of animal health, welfare and food safety in all slaughterhouses.

Official Veterinarians carry out an essential role in slaughterhouses by independently assessing and reporting breaches of animal welfare, and unrestricted access to CCTV footage will allow them to carry out this role even more effectively.

We have been campaigning for these measures for a number of years and it is reassuring to see such a high level of support for their implementation from industry and the public.

The government will now further discuss the details of bringing in the proposals and present draft legislation to Parliament as soon as Parliamentary time allows.

World Horse Welfare welcomes decision to make CCTV mandatory in English slaughterhouses

World Horse Welfare welcomes decision to make CCTV mandatory in English slaughterhouses

In its response to the results of a consultation on the issue, the Government announced that from spring 2018, CCTV will be required in every slaughterhouse in England in all areas where live animals are present, and that Official Veterinarians (OVs) will have unrestricted access to footage which must be kept for 90 days. Slaughterhouses will have six months to implement the new requirements.

World Horse Welfare Chief Executive Roly Owers said: "We applaud the Government for this welcome advance for equine welfare, as accountability and transparency are essential if the slaughterhouse is to remain an option for horse owners, especially those who cannot afford the high price of euthanasia."

World Horse Welfare has campaigned since 2013 for mandatory CCTV in all areas of a slaughterhouse, as recommended by the Farm Animal Welfare Council, and for the footage to be easily accessible by OVs.  The charity believes that CCTV can aid the OV in monitoring welfare and also serve as an excellent training resource for slaughterhouses to help make all processes as welfare-friendly as possible.

"Without CCTV in all areas of the slaughterhouse where live animals are present, horses at abattoirs are at greater risk of being 'invisible' and horse owners needed greater confidence in the process."

Last year almost three quarters of over 900 horse owners the charity asked through a Facebook survey said they would not have confidence that horse welfare would be protected throughout the slaughter process. While more than 90% of those asked would not use a slaughterhouse to end their horse's life, almost half of them would consider it an acceptable option if measures were in place such as CCTV which is constantly in operation and available to the relevant authorities for monitoring at any time.

The Government's consultation response cited that "World Horse Welfare noted that market pressure for CCTV was not present in horse slaughter but there was a need to increase confidence in horse owners that slaughter was a humane end of life choice."

"We are especially grateful to everyone who has helped achieve this change, either by signing our petition, writing to your MP or sharing the campaign.  We have been delighted with the wide support we and other organisations have received on this issue, and we look forward to seeing the details of the proposals."

Nineteen fly-grazed Shire horses rescued 

Kidderminster rescue of 19 Shire horses

Redwings joined forces with the Blue Cross, Bransby Horses, HorseWorld, RSPCA and World Horse Welfare to round-up a group of Shire horses found fly-grazing in Bewdley, near Kidderminster, Worcestershire.

They received a call  from a landowner about a large group of Shire horses fly-grazing on his land. Notices were issued for the owner to claim the horses, but sadly to no avail. Under the Control of Horses Act 2015 (England), ownership was then transferred to the landowner who requested help to secure the future of the horses as he was not able to provide the care these heavy horses require.

Concerns were raised for the welfare of the horses with the onset of winter
Concerns were raised for the welfare of the horses with the onset of winter

Following a visit and assessment of the horses by Redwings' Senior Field Officer Julie Harding, concerns were also raised for the welfare of the horses with the onset of winter and in light of the youngsters and foals being completely unhandled. 

"I cannot comprehend why such a low value was placed on these beautiful animals to fly-graze them in the first place and then not to come forward to claim them," commented Julie. "It really saddens me, but thankfully we were able to offer them a home where they'll be treasured."

During the 15-hour rescue operation, all 19 horses were successfully removed from the site. Redwings offered a home to six horses – four mares, two of which had foals at foot, and who have all since been named after species of butterfly. Four horses were offered homes by RSPCA, three by HorseWorld, and Bransby Horses, Blue Cross and World Horse Welfare all offering homes to two horses each.

The Shires rescued included mares with foals at foot The Shires rescued included mares with foals at foot

Commenting on the rescue operation, Redwings' Head of Welfare and Behaviour Nic de Brauwere said: "It is safe to say that had we not intervened the welfare of this group would have been at great risk, especially with the approaching winter. No provisions had been made by the former owner for their ongoing care, nor had the youngsters received any type of handling, owing to a complete lack of basic care.

"This round-up is an example of both the effectiveness of the Control of Horses Act and of successful partnership working among the welfare charities to secure the future of a group of horses, the outlook for whom would otherwise have been bleak".

WILD HORSES TO BE SLAUGHTERED TO BE BUTCHERED AND SERVED AS SUSHI

Nominations open for the Haddon Training British Grooms Awards 2017

Says Marilyn Kroplick, MD, President, In Defense of Animals

The wild horses and burros of the American West, symbols of American freedoms and values we share and hold dear, are under threat of losing the federal protections that keep them alive.

Protections defined by the Wild and Free-Roaming Horses and Burros Act are at tremendous risk since the Act was unanimously passed by Congress in 1971. The House Appropriations Committee has voted to allow the Bureau of Land Management, the federal body responsible for the care and stewardship of these animals, unlimited sales of captive wild horses and burros as part of the proposed 2018 budget. 

Now the Senate Appropriations Committee, followed by a joint House-Senate conference, will decide their fate. We have reason to believe that America's mustangs are already being shipped for slaughter to Canada and Mexico – and as far afield as Japan where they are butchered and served as sushi.

It's inexcusable. Unconscionable! And unless we press our lawmakers, the nightmare scenario of mass horse slaughter will become reality.

Taxpayer dollars would be used to fund and facilitate the roundup and sale of these animals from federal lands to a vicious and cruel slaughter. Federally funded horsemeat inspections and programs would pave the way for the return of barbarous horse slaughter to US soil.

If the proposed budget moves forward in its current form, as many as 96,000 captive and wild horses would be deemed "excess," as if they were mere objects to get rid of. Mustangs and burros who are not already languishing in holding pens would potentially be gunned down on the very lands that were promised to sustain them decades ago.

To save America's horses and burros from export and certain slaughter, we need your help and your donation of any amount to In Defense of Animals Wild Horse Campaign today.

In Defense of Animals has joined with the National Academy of Sciences and 40 other national organizations to propose humane, sustainable solutions for managing wild horses and burros on public lands. We are countering the ridiculous claims made by the Bureau of Land (mis)Management to smear the horses. Wild horses and burros have been made into scapegoats by the extractive and cattle industries which the BLM allows to exploit the very lands that were legally mandated to nurture our nation's mustangs over 45 years ago – and all at taxpayer expense!

Your donation today will help In Defense of Animals fund and support practical solutions for the continued peaceful existence of our nation's majestic mustangs.

Urgent action is needed! Our voices must be heard, and your donation today makes that happen.

RESEARCH IN HORSES COULD HELP PREVENT HUMANS FROM GETTING HOARSE

RESEARCH IN HORSES COULD HELP PREVENT HUMANS FROM GETTING HOARSE

A new research technique developed to investigate the devastating disease Strangles in horses, has helped scientists in human medicine take a leap forward in understanding the bacteria that causes many of us to become hoarse ourselves.

World-leading scientists at the Houston Methodist Research Institute in partnership with scientific and veterinary research charity, the Animal Health Trust (AHT), have identified new genes linked to how Streptococcus pyogenes, the infection responsible for a sore throat, survives in saliva from people.

The technique they used to support this discovery was developed by the AHT to better understand Streptococcus equi, which causes Strangles, where horses suffer from large pus-filled abscesses in their throat and neck. With an estimated 600 outbreaks of Strangles each year in the UK alone, the AHT has spent many years examining how the bug causes disease, to be able to develop effective vaccines to prevent such outbreaks occurring in the first instance. 

To do this AHT scientists constructed a new method for identifying the most important genes for the bug's survival in different conditions. It is this technique that has been shared with human medicine counterparts, enabling the analysis of this human pathogen. This example of the transfer of knowledge between veterinary and human research under the umbrella of 'one medicine' has huge potential to enhance scientific knowledge to the benefit of both animals and humans.

"We are delighted that a technique developed at the AHT to learn more about Streptococcus equi and Strangles in horses has provided new results that could benefit people too" said Dr. Andrew Waller, Head of Bacteriology at the AHT. "We have learnt a huge amount about our bug through following the work being done on human diseases, and it is great to be able to give something back in return. This study highlights the similarities of animal and human pathogens. We hope that our technique will also prove useful for the study and prevention of other diseases, regardless of the animal they affect."

The sharing of knowledge and discoveries in their research is a core aim of the Animal Health Trust – whether it be with fellow vets, scientists and medics. The best treatments rely on the best cures so this is an important step forward for both horse and man.

Artist's War Horse sculpture banned from roundabouts

Horse sculpture on roundabout

An artist has been told to stop displaying a giant horse sculpture on roundabouts by councillors who say it could cause accidents.

Damian O'Connor put his 10ft (3m) War Horse at several sites near Norwich.

Norfolk County Council said it was an "obstruction" and not allowed on "highway land", as reported in the EDP.

Mr O'Connor hit back at the "jobworths" and said drivers rarely crash into Nelson's Column or the Arc de Triomphe, which are also on roundabouts.

The artist, from Taverham, Norfolk, said the roundabouts near his home and on the new Northern Distributor Road were "a great stage for the work".

He said he wheels his horse, which is made from steel, wood and reeds, out to various roundabouts "at three in the morning, where he looks wonderful under the stars".

War horse sculpture on roundabout

However, Norfolk County Council disagreed and wrote to him about his "item on the highway", saying he must "remove the item as soon as possible" or "further enforcement action" could be taken by the highways department.

The council also warned Mr O'Connor he could be liable for any "claim for civil damages for loss or personal injury" should his horse be deemed to have caused an accident.

Mr O'Connor described the council officer as a "jobsworth" and said the email was "daft" in his reply.

He also accused the council of "hypocritical twaddle" and questioned whether advertising space sold by the council on its roundabouts was also deemed to be a distraction.

Horse sculpture

Mr O'Connor said he was not trying to sell his work but was displaying it to "commemorate the millions of horses lost in wars".

The artist said he had not yet heard back from the council.

However, a spokesman for the authority told the BBC they had "used our discretion in this case but now had to ask that the sculpture is removed and the owner finds a more suitable place to promote the artwork".

The council has a "legal duty" to consider whether "anything on highway land [could] cause an unnecessary or dangerous obstruction, or reduce visibility", he added.

Enable has been named horse of the year at the 2017 Cartier Racing Awards.

The three-year-old, ridden by Frankie Dettori for trainer John Gosden, won the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe at Chantilly last month.

Enable beat Cracksman, Ribchester and Ulysses to claim the award. She was the first British-trained filly to win the Arc, Europe's most valuable race.

Enable was also named top three-year-old filly, while stablemate Cracksman was the top colt in that age group.

It is the second time in three years that owner Anthony Oppenheimer, Dettori and Gosden are celebrating, after Golden Horn won the horse of the year award in 2015.

Enable won five consecutive Group One races, including the English and Irish Oaks, and the King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Stakes.

Ulysses won the older horse prize, with trainer Sir Michael Stoute given the award of merit.

Horses trained by Aidan O'Brien topped three categories - Order Of St George (stayer), US Navy Flag (two-year-old colt) and Happily (two-year-old filly).

Horseytalk - Product of the Week

Battling the Elements this Winter   

Easy-to-chew Forage Mix for Veteran Horses

In winter, muddy, wet conditions can cause a headache for many horse owners.  Mud is a prime breeding ground for a range of bacteria, and when horses are stood in deep, wet mud for prolonged periods of time these bacteria can transfer easily onto their skin.

Ideally, we would keep our horse's legs clean and dry in winter and use well-drained turnout only.  However, in reality this is impractical – turnout can quickly become churned and boggy and often hacking is the only option for exercise, making exposure to mud inevitable.

Robinson Animal Healthcare manufactures a number of products to keep in your first aid kit to help battle the mud this winter.

Activ Scrub* is an antibacterial scrub and cleansing wash that is effective in seconds. Mild and gentle, Activ Scrub is perfect for keeping legs clean and is supplied in an easy to use, pump bottle. 

After rinsing, it is essential to dry the legs thoroughly. Veterinary Gamgee® is ideal for wrapping around the legs to absorb excess moisture and insulate.

Equiwrap® self-adhering bandages can then be used to secure the Gamgee® in place and also provides extra support. Available in a range of colours Equiwrap® can be torn by hand and is breathable.  

Robinson Animal Healthcare has a wide range of products for all your first aid requirements.

*Use biocides safely. Always read the label and product information before use.
