Animal welfare, not animal "rights"
 
Cruelty charges filed against slaughterhouse boss

A video taken at the Chino facility prompted schools
nationwide to pull beef from their menus.

San Bernardino County prosecutors today filed felony
charges against a former Chino slaughterhouse manager
who allegedly used cruel methods to force at-risk
cattle into the slaughter box. A videotape taken at the
facility has led to schools nationwide pulling beef
from cafeterias.

In what prosecutors called unprecedented charges,
49-year-old Daniel Ugarte Navarro of Pomona faces up to
eight years and eight months in prison if convicted of
five felony counts of animal cruelty and three
misdemeanor counts of illegal movement of a
non-ambulatory animal. Navarro, who was a head pen
manager at Hallmark Meat Packing, was fired last month
after the release of the video by the Humane Society of
the United States.

----------------------------------------------------------


These charges have been brought not because animals
have rights - they do not; they *cannot* - but because
right-thinking people care about animal welfare, and
don't want animals to be abused.

Perhaps breeding animals and processing them for food is abuse.

No; not to any right-thinking person.

I've always extended the family meatloaf with sawdust. Maybe the whole thing
can be sawdust?

Like Mr Burns' cake. He pickled the figs himself.
