Investigation Uncovers Cow Waterboarding (Warning: Graphic Photos)
WARNING: Graphic Cow Waterboarding Photos Below!
The Humane Society of the US uncovered cow torture in a special investigation.
Undercover investigators captured video of unsuspecting cattle being led into the torture chamber.
The Humane Society of the United States said on Wednesday a California slaughterhouse was using a range of torture including “waterboarding” to prod unfit animals into the slaughterhouse so they could be processed into food that may have ended up in school lunch programs.
The Humane Society displayed a video from its own undercover, six-week investigation that it said showed abuse by workers at the Hallmark Meat Packing Co of Chino, California. However, the name of the plant was not visible in the video.
The video showed workers kicking cows, ramming them with forklift blades, applying electric shocks and even using a hose to simulate the feeling of drowning so the animals would revive long enough to pass federal inspection.
“The attempt was to make them so distressed and to cause them so much suffering that these animals would get up and walk into the slaughterhouse,” Wayne Pacelle, president of the Humane Society of the United States, told reporters.
