Lawsuit: Close Tnuva Plant for Abuse


The groups Anonymous for Animal Rights and Let the Animals Live have filed suit to the Supreme Court demanding a temporary order to shut down a Tnuva company slaughterhouse facing allegations of animal abuse. An undercover investigation at the slaughterhouse found that animals were beaten and otherwise ill-treated.

The plant should not be allowed to continue operating until the criminal investigation into the allegations is complete and lessons have been learned, they argued.
