The Footage That Made This International Wool Supplier Cut Ties With a Farm It Had Trusted for Years

Posted by 12 months ago | Permalink | Comments (50)

Workers cut off part of lambs’ ears, put tight rings around their scrotums and cut off their tails – all without pain relief – on this Argentine farm.

PETA US just exposed extreme cruelty at another wool farm in Argentina, following its recent investigation of so-called “sustainable” farms in the Ovis 21 network.

This new footage is so bad that leading wool supply company Chargeurs said it would cut ties with the farm after watching it.

In addition to the painful mutilations inflicted on lambs, the investigator also documented that sheep were abused during shearing: shearers hit sheep with electric clippers, slammed them to the hard floor and kicked and stood on them. Fast, rough shearing left many sheep cut and bleeding. The animals were not given any painkillers before workers pushed needles through their skin to sew up gaping wounds.

The cruelty documented on this farm is not unique, and similar abuses have been documented at dozens of farms and shearing sheds across Australia and the US. Like all industries that treat animals as commodities, the wool trade routinely puts profit above sheep’s welfare.

Speak Out for Sheep

These abuses may have occurred before, but we want to stop them from happening again. Please help!

  • Don’t buy products made out of wool. There is simply no such thing as “humane” wool, and the best way to protect these gentle animals is to withhold your money from industries that hurt them.
  • Send a quick message to Chargeurs, thanking it for cutting ties with this farm and also urging the company to move completely away from buying and selling wool. As more and more consumers look for clothes that are not the product of cruelty, it’s time for the company to shift to sourcing vegan wool.

    to stop injustice to innocents stop buying the product the most evil humans will then suffer

      This is a heinous act, that is so unconscionable, it is hard to believe people could be so cruel.
      The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and other law enforcement agencies have long recognized the high incidence of repeated animal abuse in the early history of many of the most violent serial killers, serial rapists, and sexual homicide perpetrators

      • Dave and Rita Cross commented on October 24, 2015 at 9:07 pm

        You bet it is! Wool is a product that comes from intense suffering; we must all boycott all wool products!

        In Jan, 2016, the FBI will institute its animal abuse registry which will help them solve crimes. Many criminals began their lives of crime by torturing animals before moving on to people! Kudos to the FBI!

  • Jean Parr commented on October 5, 2015 at 3:04 pm

    I would like to treat the beasts that are committing these cruel acts to these poor animals in the same way and worse

  • susan commented on October 5, 2015 at 3:26 pm

    this is disgusting
    please stop this

  • Magdalena commented on October 5, 2015 at 3:40 pm

    This is outreagous, this is XXI century and we – the humans – behave like we were living in IXth. What is wrong with some of you people!!!!! Don’t you have any compassion, empathy???? We should really build awarness and make all the companies stop using wool and other things made of animals. Please think what you do to other beings and think about it as it was about to be made to you!

    • Sybil commented on November 18, 2015 at 7:01 pm

      I quite agree

  • Michelle Stout commented on October 5, 2015 at 3:42 pm

    You people that do this to animals are not fully human, you are immersed in ignorance and low level consciousness
    and you are so selfish you can’t even awaken to the thought of how you would feel having this kind of treatment done to you. In total you are an absolute disgrace and this world would be better off without you. I pray you either wake-up or through good fortune your own life is cut very short.

  • maggie cranfield commented on October 5, 2015 at 4:21 pm

    This is horrendous, wtf????….this totally NOT needed!!!!….stop those shitty cruel barstards!!!!

  • Louise Pakes commented on October 5, 2015 at 4:27 pm

    There are no words to describe what I have just seen on facebook

  • Carol russell commented on October 5, 2015 at 4:33 pm

    The treatment to animals should not be cruel the thing I have seen in this TV and read make me feel sick I’m ashamed to be human. There is no humanity for these animals . This cruelty must be stopped and the perpetrators should be punished.

  • Lyn Banks commented on October 5, 2015 at 4:43 pm

    Can’t watch this video, all too aware of the treatment of these sweet animals. Nobody needs wool, we can easily live without it.

  • claudine giovannoni commented on October 5, 2015 at 4:57 pm

    Actually I have no words to describe what I feel after seeing this movie showing abuses on sheeps…
    Only deep sadness…
    How can humans be so brutal, so disgustingly vicious against a defenseless living creature?

    De vrais sauvages, j’aimerai les voir à la place des moutons, s’il vous plait, attrapez les et leur faire subie le même traitement. L’humain est la pire des espèces, les animaux sont des anges. J’espère que ces gens là le paieront pour le restant de leur vie.
    Saleté.

    ES LA PEOR CONDUCTA QUE HE VISTO DEL SER HUMANO, ESTO SE TIENE QUE ACABAR, ES TERRIBLE ABUSO; CRUEL, COBARDE Y MISERABLE; ESTO EN EL MUNDO NO PUEDE SEGUIR PASANDO, ES UN VERDADERO INFIERNO Y ACABAN CON LOS VALORES ÉTICOS DE TODAS LAS SOCIEDADES.

    ES TERRIBLEMENTE TRISTE SABER LO DESTRUCTIVO QUE PUEDE SER EL SER HUMANO CUANDO ES PERDEDOR Y SE SIENTE TERRIBLEMENTE FRUSTRADO, LO ÚNICO QUE ESTO NOS DEJA VER EN LA CONDUCTA DEL SER HUMANO ES SU HORRENDA IGNORANCIA; LOS SISTEMAS, LAS INDUSTRIAS, LAS FORMAS DE ESTILO DE VIDA QUE EL SER HUMANO CREE QUE ESTÁN BIEN SON NEFASTAS Y LOS GOBIERNOS NO HAN HECHO BIEN LAS COSAS; TODA ESTA VIDA EN EL PLANETA NO ESTÁ FUNCIONANDO Y EL SER HUMANO NO DEJA DE EQUIVOCARSE TODOS LOS DÍAS DE SU VIDA, EL SER HUMANO SE CONVIERTE EN UN SER VIL Y COBARDE QUE CREE QUE VIVIR EN EL ODIO Y LAS DIFERENCIAS ES LA ÚNICA FORMA DE VIVIR Y NO CONOCE OTRA. POBRE SER HUMANO QUE ES TAN INSIGNIFICANTE, IGNORANTE, CRUEL, MEDIOCRE Y ABERRANTE!!! NUNCA ESTARÁ EN PAZ, NO VIVIRÁ FELIZ NI LIBRE, PORQUE SU MENTE NO CONOCE SIQUIERA LO QUE ES JUSTICIA, NUESTRO CEREBRO ES AÚN MUY POBRE Y TAN POCO EVOLUCIONADO, EL SER HUMANO NO LOGRA LAS EXPECTATIVAS DE LA FELICIDAD, EL POBRE AÚN NO PUEDE CON LA VIDA. LA VIDA LE ASUSTA TANTO QUE NOS MUESTRA DÍA A DÍA CÓMO QUIERE ACABAR CON ELLA,, NO QUIERE LA RESPONSABILIDAD DE LA VIDA; LE HUYE, LA REPELE Y LA DESCUARTIZA TODOS LOS DÍAS DE SU VIDA; LA VIDA FUE DEMASIADO PARA LOS HUMANOS, FUE TAN HERMOSO REGALO QUE TUVO QUE DESTRUIRLA PARA NO MERECERLA, ASÍ DE ILÓGICO ES SU PENSAR, SUS MIEDOS Y SU TERRIBLE HISTORIA. TODO EN EL PLANETA FUNCIONA COMO EL SER HUMANO CREE QUE ES, PERO NUNCA LA PLENITUD DE LO QUE DEBIÓ SER. CÓMO PUEDE CREER QUE LAS COSAS ESTÁN BIEN, SI ESTAMOS RODEADOS DE POBREZA, MISERIA, DOLOR, ODIO, MUERTE Y CAOS??? NO PARECE SER QUE LOS RESULTADOS DICEN LO CONTRARIO???

    TODO ESTO QUE VEMOS CON EL TRATO A LOS ANIMALES COMO SI FUERAN ESPECIES INFERIORES, SÓLO CONDUCE AL SER HUMANO A GENERARSE EN EL ALMA MÁS ODIO Y MÁS FRUSTRACIÓN, GENERA INDIFERENCIA ENTRE UNOS Y OTROS, GENERA MALTRATO Y CAOS; EN LUGAR DE EVOLUCIONAR Y GENERAR AMOR, PAZ Y LIBERTAD; EVOLUCIÓN Y BIENESTAR.

  • Judy Cooper commented on October 5, 2015 at 5:28 pm

    I am lucky I have Alpacas and have access to plenty of wool. I know how they were fed how they are spoilt and how their coat came off! There are thousand of kind fleeces in this country that go to waste as there is no value to them. Why do farmers feel they have the right to cause immense suffering and for what? We want to protect our animals not abuse them……Oh for the want to avenge for every animal that has suffered against the hand of a cruel man!

    • ELIZABETH ANN ROSS commented on October 12, 2015 at 5:48 am

      Thank you for your sensible words and your love of animals. Respect

  • Karen commented on October 5, 2015 at 6:02 pm

    this is wrong stop angora

  • Angela Oakley commented on October 5, 2015 at 6:08 pm

    The cruelty I have just seen on this secret filming is ABSOLUTELY NOT ACCEPTABLE! Do these vile men get some sort of kick out of inflicting such pain on such gentle innocent animals?!!! There should be CCTV set up around these farms that should be monitored by people in animal welfare authority! WHY ARE ANIMALS NOT PROTECTED WHEN THEY GIVE US SO MUCH OF THEMSELVES TO US WITH NO CHOICE. I AM BREAKING MY HEART FOR THEM

  • Gayle Brooks commented on October 5, 2015 at 6:36 pm

    Stop this barbaric treatment NOW

  • Martine commented on October 5, 2015 at 9:21 pm

    I did not know! That is just awful. I will never buy wool again.

  • sjanny van vliet commented on October 5, 2015 at 9:24 pm

    Please stop this cruelty!
    These animals don’t diserve this!
    They are in pain!!!!

  • yvonne collins commented on October 5, 2015 at 9:25 pm

    calling these people names wont hurt them,they couldn’t care less but if you took away their livelihood now that would hurt them.we don’t need wool,we have enough man made fibres for our needs.good on all those companies who are no longer using farms like this.

  • Maria Richards commented on October 5, 2015 at 10:56 pm

    I am shocked in desbelived that this is happening.

    E N O U G H !

  • Monica Shepherd commented on October 6, 2015 at 12:57 am

    I did think that sheep were treated more kindly than in the Middle Ages. Sadly not. These totally greedy farmers would rather not fork out for painkillers and just carry on as they always have. Barbaric.

  • B Edwards commented on October 6, 2015 at 1:52 am

    These disgusting, unscrupulous, degrading evil monsters that call themselves human beings are the lowest of the low and should be shipped off to an island that they cannot escape from -EVER

    • lynne commented on October 24, 2015 at 1:43 pm

      l always preferred wood and cotton to synthetic products, but believed sheep were shorn of heavy uncomfortabe excess wood in a humane way. To see the horriffic way these animals are treated, causing pain and suffering we couldnt imagine, How can humans do that to any animal, barbaric, as with many illegal and legal treatment of animals, were not without guilt in uk, but do have some regulations, but some country,s regulations are non existent or not enforced, As for those that do it, from wherever, desensatised morons, vile.
      Will never buy wood produced in any barbaric cruel way, Even people who arent animal lovers must surely object against people who have the character defects to do such things. l hope at the poor animals who suffer are at peace.

  • Marisa Besteiro commented on October 6, 2015 at 5:52 am

    These animals feed and clothe us. They literally give their lives so that we can eat and be clothed. Respect their sacrifice… it is the greatest one.

    • lynne commented on October 24, 2015 at 1:47 pm

      they dont choose to suffer any more than you would, so please dont justify it as some great service to mankind, in same way bulls being vilely abused and suffering in the bull ring to entertain morons, as some sort of ultimate sacrifice service to humans, The things humans will think of to justify barbarism and cruelty to other animals,

    • Martine commented on November 2, 2015 at 5:35 pm

      They don’t give their lives: people take their lives without asking them if they are willing. That is a great difference. And people also torture them, which is absolutely awful. On top of that, all that cruelty is useless because it is very easy to live without eating and wearing them. I have done it for more than 40 years and I feel much better, physically and morally.

  • Aleisha Groth commented on October 6, 2015 at 6:44 am

    Thank you for the first step. But please please cut all ties with the wow. Industry and regulate until the time when no sheep are harmed in the process.

  • Gabriele Miatkowski commented on October 6, 2015 at 8:10 am

    Unfortunately there doesn’t seem to be a limit to human cruelty – not against himself or any other creature. Empathy is all that is needed to end the cruelty.

  • fabio paoletti commented on October 6, 2015 at 9:23 am

    Stop cruelty !

  • Angela Dench commented on October 6, 2015 at 9:24 am

    Stop this abuse now! You cruel monsters!

  • Gwen Ware commented on October 6, 2015 at 10:59 am

    Has Argentina n i animal protection laws??? Animals feel pain and fear as humans do. All suppliers of wool who needlessly cause animal suffering should be boycotted

  • Jan APpleton commented on October 6, 2015 at 11:33 am

    This is absolutely disgusting! How can anyoine trat animals like this – shame on you!

  • Lena Raman commented on October 6, 2015 at 1:10 pm

    Stop this horrible act

  • Vicky commented on October 6, 2015 at 2:19 pm

    This and other animals atrocities and pure greed make me despair for the human race.

  • Charlotte Haylings commented on October 6, 2015 at 2:23 pm

    I feel physically sick just from watching this video and it sickens me to the core to see how cowardice and cruel people can be.

    This must stop!!

  • Shirley commented on October 6, 2015 at 6:26 pm

    Bastards! Absolute bastards! I would like to see them have bits cut off without anaesthetic. EVERY living thing suffers pain. What are they, stupid or just enjoy inflicting pain?! STOP IT!!

    • Hilary Bell commented on November 8, 2015 at 7:20 pm

      Yes, cruel in the first degree. How I hope they get a most painful illness and never recover.

  • Angela commented on October 6, 2015 at 8:54 pm

    Wrong, wrong, wrong!

  • karen stickney commented on October 11, 2015 at 4:04 pm

    That’s not how wool is supposed to be made. You’re just like the vampaneze in the Sagas of Darren Shan and Larten Crepsley. You think there is no way to get something from an animal without killing it like they think there is no way to drink blood from a human without killing.

  • Margaret commented on October 12, 2015 at 12:03 am

    This is such awful cruelty which just shouldn’t be allowed PLEASE stop it now

  • Patricia commented on October 12, 2015 at 11:28 pm

    Please let this cruelty come to an end !!!! PETA you are spreading the word and more and more the man in the street is becoming more aware of the abuse of animals !!!! Wish there was an instant solution !!!!

  • Michelle Mansell commented on October 12, 2015 at 11:36 pm

    This is inhumane and should not be allowed. Once again cruelty at its highest!

  • Elisa . commented on November 1, 2015 at 11:01 am

    Humans who subject harmless, gentle creatures to horrific torture will suffer a lifetime burning in hell and be cursed to feel the same pain for the rest of their days. Rot in hell , scum.!!!

  • Elisa . commented on November 1, 2015 at 11:06 am

    This barbaric behaviour is unnecessary and those reponsible should be shot in the head and made to suffer continuous pain that they subject these poor animals too. Cruelty is NOT .. part of farming.

  • Hilary Bell commented on November 8, 2015 at 7:19 pm

    Nothing but cruel f…..g bastards.
