USDA suspends slaughterhouse after video appears to show animal cruelty

The U.S. Department of Agriculture is investigating "disturbing evidence of inhumane treatment of cattle" at a California meat supplier, the agency said.

After receiving video from an animal welfare group, the USDA sent investigators to the Central Valley Meat Co. and found violations of humane handling, the agency said in a statement.

    The last animal abuse video concerning a slaughterhouse pit forth by animal rights extremists turned out to be a hoax.

    I do try to make myself clear. In this case I admit to failure in that regard. The point I was trying to make is one which you just illustrated: the drugs are intended to be used short term. I will concede, that if they are abused, they probably WOULD affect the mind. That being said, used in the manner DIRECTED, they are designed to alter MOODS. As in a crisis, when one may make rash decisions,or take rash action. Despair can be a mind set. It can also be a passing mood. I should have been more clear.

    Correction: philips two cents. You never have your own opinion.
