Abuse Video Leads to Shutdown of CA Slaughterhouse

The USDA halts operations of Central Valley Meat Co. after watching an undercover video taken inside the slaughterhouse.

Central Valley Meat Co., owned by Brian and Lawrence Coelho, was shut down yesterday due to violating the US Department of Agriculture’s handling regulations. Animal-welfare group Compassion Over Killing exposed the cruel environment inside the California-based slaughterhouse to the USDA last Friday. An undercover investigator, employed by Central Valley Meat Co., filmed this video over a two-week period in June. The graphic video reveals slaughterhouse employees suffocating a cow, propelling a fully conscious cow hanging by one leg on a conveyor lift, and kicking the animals to walk toward their slaughter. COK will release the video on its website sometime today.
