Protest Outside Shrewsbury Slaughterhouse Draws Response From Company

Members of an animal rights group try to bring attention to the slaughterhouse operations in Shrewsbury.

On Saturday, My9NJ filmed a local New Jersey group held a peaceful protest outside of Catelli Brothers slaughterhouse in Shrewsbury, NJ.

Catelli Brothers was temporarily closed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture after an investigation by the Humane Society showed still-conscious calves hanging upside down on a conveyor belt, and a calf being prodded while struggling to walk.

Catelli Brothers has now been cleared and reopened for business, but some in the state disagree with the reopening, including Amy Horowitz an organizer for the group NJ Farm Animals Save.

Watch the video produced by My9NJ's Chasing New Jersey to hear the Catelli Brothers response to changes they've made at the Route 35 slaughterhouse. 

Chasing New Jersey airs weeknights at 10pm on My9. Visit their Facebook page.

The glib, insensitive statements made by the man who was ordering "veal" proves either his ignorance or his own discomfort at having to kill babies to satisfy his appetite. Of course we don't have to eat babies or juveniles of any species in order to be quite healthy and happy... Just because something is "legal" doesn't make it ethical - or kind.
