A slaughterhouse in China is giving pigs showers, saunas and massages before chopping them up.

Light music is played as the pigs are pampered before being electrocuted.

The manager of the abattoir in Mianyang, Sichuan province, said he decided to give the pigs a final treat because he wanted their deaths to be as humane as possible.

Guo Xianfeng told the Tianfu Morning Post the pigs fell asleep after the sauna and massage and felt no pain when they were electrocuted.
