Compassion Over Killing
The United States Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety
Inspection Service closed a California slaughterhouse
on Monday (August 20, 2012) after receiving undercover
video footage of multiple abuses at that facility.
The films were supplied by an animal rights group,
Compassion Over Killing. Their website:
Without further comment, I offer you a look at the
four-minute lowlight reel edited from hours of footage.
Justin DeJong of the Food Safety Inspection Service
issued this statement:
„USDA considers inhumane treatment of animals at slaughter
facilities to be unacceptable and is conducting a thorough
investigation into these allegations.“
That statement by federal authorities is remarkable in that
USDA has two full-time inspectors at that site, Central Valley
Meat Company which sells meat directly to USDA for government
subsidized feeding programs.
The company statement as reported by Tracie Cone of the Associated
„We were extremely disturbed to be informed by the USDA that…
our plant could not operate based upon a videotape that was
provided to the Department by a third party group that alleged
inhumane treatment of animals on our property.
