Is it places like this that give an outlet to sheep rustlers also? Hopefully it stems the trade
how is this going to stem the trade?
If these blokes get the wind up, and decide not to simply move their operation to another site, what deterrent is there to anyone else setting up?
£140 fine and a suspended sentence? You'd cover that in a matter of hours....

Where do all the stolen lambs and sheep go, likely through a slaughterhose like that. As long as there's a market someone will do it. I know a slaughterman, he's been propositioned once or twice to do a 'bit on the side'.

I was more asking the question, if more places like this are exposed/closed hopefully it will curtail the trade in stolen sheep, but yeah the punishment is far from adequate, we frequently hear in the media of sheep rustling but there is never a mention of where these beasts end up, probably due to fear of upsetting ethnic minoritys

It just makes you feel ill looking at those pictures - the judiciary should be ashamed of itself with those pathetic sentences, and the pr*ck of a local authority "cabinet member" must be joking.. DISGUSTING - surely the National Daily papers need to give this sick sentencing a good airing.
No doubt all the movements to this slaughter-house have been properly recorded too:mad:!

Assumedly the pigs are cleaning up the sheep offal on site. Not exactly “crime of the century” Bit of a leap to start assuming they are rustled or stolen livestock.
Appears only breaching local authority hygiene/licensing regulations ....
I think "cleaning up the offal on site" by the pigs is a touch more serious than a breach of regulations. Feeding meat to pigs has been illegal for the best part of two decades.

Need I remind anyone on here that FMD was circulating in the sheep population long before it broke into other species - with catastrophic consequences - in February 2001?

Doesn't take a brain surgeon to work out that feeding sheep offal to pigs could be the start of something that royally fudges over another whole generation of livestock farmers, does it?

ETA: for anyone who's forgotten how sh!t the 2001 outbreak was, this thread is worth a read: https://thefarmingforum.co.uk/index.php?threads/2001-foot-and-mouth-outbreak.267242/
