The history of the slaughterhouse in Taichung’s Minlong Community

文字-A A +A

Minlong Lane in Taichung’s West District was the site of Taichung’s early slaughterhouse and pig auction house. At that time, slaughtering was carried out manually. The majority of animals slaughtered were pigs, followed by cattle, and then goats. Minlong Community Development Association is promoting its precious historical culture by producing a community map and creative pig dolls.

 

In the early days, a monument was built in the slaughterhouse to worship the souls of animals slaughtered and show gratitude for their sacrifice. At present, only the former pedestal is left, which is still in the office of Minlong village warden. Every year on August 1st of the lunar calendar, there was a grand ceremony where residents would make offerings of flour to worship the souls of animals. The community of Minlong has organized several local activities to close the generation gap and help pass on the area’s rich history and culture to future generations.

台中民龍社區社造 屠宰場歷史再現

台中市西區民龍里,是早期台中市屠宰場以及仔豬拍賣場的所在地,當時是採用人工宰殺,並且以宰殺豬隻為大宗,其次是牛,最少的是羊。而民龍社區發展協會,透過製作社區地圖以及文創豬公仔,來發揚珍貴的歷史文化。

 

早期為了感念豬隻,與動物們的犧牲,屠宰場內建造了一座獸魂碑,用來祭拜動物的靈魂。目前只剩下以前的基座,還保留在民龍里的里長辦公室。每年的農曆八月一日,是祭拜的盛典,居民們會供奉使用麵粉製作的祭品,來祭拜動物的靈魂。民龍社區舉辦多項社區活動,不僅拉近長輩與孩童之間的情感,更讓社區的歷史文化永續傳承。
