Media Statement re: Animal Cruelty Charges Against Yurianne Hervis-Gonzalez for Slaughterhouse Practices

For Immediate Release:
August 6, 2014

PETA encourages everyone who is rightly appalled by the horrific crimes exposed in Yurianne Hervis-Gonzalez’s illegal slaughterhouse to oppose all the horrors of meat production and go vegan. Even in legal slaughterhouses, sensitive, intelligent pigs are bludgeoned, are boiled alive, and have their throats cut while they’re still conscious. The only way to ensure that no animals suffer for our meals is to keep them off our plates entirely, and PETA is happy to help with recipes, tips, and encouragement.
