Quite appalling. At first I was going to say that all slaughterhouses should have 24/7 monitoring via video cameras to monitor the treatment of animals being slaughtered, however, this was an illegal operation to begin with, which makes one wonder how many of these exist.


"Unlicensed slaughterhouses have become commonplace in western parts of Miami-Dade County, where authorities in recent years have busted offenders for illegally butchering and selling horse meat, pigs and chickens."

This is not the first local operation led by Animal Recovery Mission that has led to arrests.

In November, Hialeah slaughterhouse owner Rudesino “Rudy” Acosta pleaded guilty and accepted 10 years of probation after Couto filmed the slaughter of some animals in 2011.

A line of television news satellite trucks crowded the street outside the agricultural property on Wednesday. Couto, dressed in a black-SWAT-style outfit, said at the scene that his group had investigated similar allegations there in 2009 and 2010. No arrests were made but the owners were issued code violations and the farm was shut down.

The owners then leased it to Fernandez, who continued to run the operation despite more code violations being levied in November.

Couto said the slaughter of the animals was so violent and inhumane that four of his undercover operators quit after the probe."

It seems that violations continue at some place, which leaves the question as to why such places are allowed to continue to operate if they are in violation.

One wonders where the meat is also sold, to regular grocery stores? If so, doesn't the store have to verify if it comes from a legal operation?

Hopefully, those involved get serious jail time.

Signed. I wouldn't watch the video though. "It’s monstrous. These operators are savages with no sense of humanity,” said Couto." That says it all. The details in this story are very disturbing.
