Aitor Garmendia captures, The Horrific Brutality of the meat Industry.

“The meat industry knows the damage that can be caused by images of abused animals,” the photojournalist Aitor Garmendia said, “In order that these images never see the light, they have guidelines to prevent cameras from accessing their facilities.” In fact, his work on slaughterhouses, part of a larger project on animal exploitation titled Tras los Muros (Behind the Walls), is the most extensive undercover record of its kind. Starting in 2015, Garmendia traveled to eleven states throughout Mexico to document the transportation and killing of farm animals. “he visited about two hundred slaughterhouses,” he reports. “he entered fifty-eight.”

At the slaughterhouse in Arriaga, Mexico, this horse arrived with a mobility problem that prevented him from accessing the stunning box by himself. He was dragged by a chain attached to his neck and died of asphyxia after being suspended several minutes. This is a practice prohibited by law.

Horse slaughterhouse in Arriaga, Mexico. Mexico is the third-largest producer of horse meat in the world. In this slaughterhouse located in the town of Arriaga, Mexico, the horses were stunned by electric shock for several days due to a breakdown in the captive bolt gun. This is a practice prohibited by law.

A group of pigs being held in a pre-slaughter area in a slaughterhouse in Atizapan, Mexico. The law requires that the pigs are taken to the stunning box where an electric shock should be applied. However, in this slaughterhouse, as in others, the pigs are driven to the slaughter area directly without prior stunning and are killed fully conscious.
An operator prepares to hit a pig with a club in a slaughterhouse owned by the government in Arriaga, Mexico. This way the animal is immobilized and facilitates the task of bleeding, but remains conscious. This practice is prohibited.
A pig after being receiving an electric discharge in a slaughterhouse in Oaxaca de Juarez, Mexico. In electric stunning, special pincers equipped with two electrodes located at their ends are placed on both sides of the animal’s head and transmit an electric shock. If done correctly – something that does not always happen – an epileptic seizure is caused and, consequently, momentary loss of consciousness. This method is reversible, i.e.: even in cases where the process is carried out correctly, the animal regains consciousness in a short time.
After the slaughter, the heads and legs belonging to each animal are grouped for sale in a slaughterhouse in Izucar de Matamoros, Mexico. Scenes like this are common in many other slaughterhouses.
