On Friday, Vermont Attorney General William H. Sorrell announced that arrest warrants for cruelty to animals have been issued for Bushway Packing Inc. owner Frank Perretta and factory-farm worker Christopher Gaudette. Peretta is being charged with one count of cruelty to animals, a felony, and Gaudette has been charged with two counts of cruelty to animals, a misdemeanor, and one count of aggravated cruelty to animals, a felony. Last October, the Humane Society of the United States released an undercover investigation revealing abuse and neglect at Bushway, and on October 30 the US Department of Agriculture suspended operations at the slaughterhouse.
