Photos > Gondola VIC 2017

Gondola - This is a gondola. It is the cage that pigs are forced into where they will experience Carbon Dioxide gassing. The gas in here is used as the 'stunning' method to render pigs unconscious, but long exposure can also cause death. Once they are in, the pigs are trapped and will be lowered below ground level to where the Co2 is prepared for them. To cause unconsciousness promptly, the gas in the chambers must be very concentrated.

The density of the gas is so painful that slaughterhouse workers have reported finding pigs' hooves at the bottom of the chamber, a result of the pig thrashing around so violently while being asphyxiated with gas that they rip their hooves off their feet.
