Definition of slaughterman in English:
A person employed to kill animals for food.
- - There was an absence of resources such as trucks, slaughter men and guns which led to a backlog of carcasses lying on the ground.
- The slaughter-man scowled and looked over his shoulder at the welter of sweating, agitated horses: he was needed to quell the unrest in the yard.
- Terrible tales abound about farmers who only became aware of a local cull when they saw the slaughtermen at work in neighbouring fields; or ministry vets travelling from infected farm to farm, possibly spreading the disease.
