Institutionalized Animal Cruelty – S: Joe Pagliuso & Bros. – 20120314
Please share this information with as many people as you can, because it’s up to us to speak out for the animals who cannot speak for themselves; and since the government seems unwilling or unable to put an end to repeated instances of unlawful institutionalized animal cruelty, it is up to us to expose the egregious acts of cruelty going on behind closed doors.
On 14 March 2012, Joe Pagliuso & Bros., Inc., slaughterhouse in Ontario, New York was inspected by the USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS), and once again cited for improperly stunning animals. The report stated:
Citation: HATS Category VIII: At approximately 1020 hours while reviewing the insensibility records I observed the following non-compliance. A bovine (under 30 month steer) required a double stun to render the animal unconscious. The animal was first shot with the 410, which did not render it unconscious, and then the plants immediate action was to shoot the animal again using the 410. The animal was rendered unconscious on the second shot. I found the bovine head and confirmed that it had been shot twice with the 410. I then discussed the issue with the HACCP Coordinator, and the plant Manager . and both informed me that the employee who performed the stunning on the bovine () would not be allowed to stun any animals using a firearm.

For those who have been following this blog, it becomes painfully obvious that little or nothing is really being done to stop these repeated acts of improper stunning, which all have the same “error”; and the animals suffer because of it.
Institutionalized animal cruelty is running wild in the world, as these reports show, and if the government is allowing these repeated instances to occur at Joe Pagliuso & Bros., they must be allowing them to occur at other facilities.
The only sure way to end this seemingly endless line of cited and uncited instances of institutionalized animal cruelty is to go vegan, and share our compassionate reasons for doing it, so that others will follow our example.
