JBS Cited for Inhumanely Handling Cattle

Susan Moore, TSM

I think most of us who are not in the slaughter business would cringe at all that’s involved in getting beef onto our dinner tables.

A report issued by the USDA describes JBS employees moving cattle into a pen when one of the animals tripped and broke it’s leg.  Within about a 5 minute time frame it was shot 6 times before becoming unconscious.

The FSIS District Office in Denver received a written response from JBS on March 7, assuring it would prevent any future occurrences of inhumane handling of livestock.

This story reminded me of another abuse case in Weld County last November. It involved days old calves being mishandled.
