This penalty amount is also imposed upon concentrated slaughterhouses committing one of the following violations:

- Have none of pre-slaughtered livestock storage facilities complying with hygiene regulations;  

- Beat livestock before slaughter.

Additionally, a fine of between 01 million dong and 03 million dong will be imposed for the act of cruelly beating and torturing livestock.
