Animals‘ Angels visits several poultry slaughterhouses, shown on a list of Germany's Federal Ministry for Consumer Protection and Food Safety. The team finds out that most of the small-scale regional slaughterhouses have been shut down. The trend is towards huge facilities in which animals are killed without a break after stressful transports.

Animals’ Angels is denied access to one of the major poultry slaughterhouses. Information about the animals’ transport routes is not provided. Animals’ Angels will request an appointment for visiting the facility and information about the animals’ transport times by letter.
