Chris Cosentino, a champion carnivore and chef of Incanto and Boccalone dry cured meats, alerted me to this Washington Post article about footage secretly taken by the Humane Society at a major meat processor in Chino, CA. We can read about the global impact in the morning paper, but this video tells the story from cow’s vantage point. It’s graphic and appalling (view it at the humane society or at Cosentino’s site with his angry commentary). As Chris notes, it’s the price of cheap meat. Temple Grandin, a woman who has been instrumental in designing humane methods for slaughtering cows, told The Post it is “one of the worst animal-abuse videos I have ever viewed." And no doubt she’s seen plenty.
