Last fall, the Bushway packing plant in Grand Isle was shut down after undercover videotape was released showing abuse and mistreatment of animals before they were slaughtered. The plant remains closed, but the discussion of how to enforce laws on the treatment of animals in slaughterhouses continues.

Addison County Senator Harold Giard has introduced a bill that would add a new layer of inspection to the current rules on operating slaughterhouses. He talks with VPR’s Jane Lindholm.
