Vt. slaughterhouse co-owner turns himself in

Published: Mon, August 9, 2010 @ 5:18 p.m.

NORTH HERO, Vt. (AP) — The co-owner of a now-closed Vermont slaughterhouse has turned himself in on an animal cruelty charge.

The attorney general’s office says 51-one-year-old Frank Perretta of Grand Isle was released on $10,000 bail Monday after surrendering.

Bushway Packing Inc., was shut down Oct. 30 amid allegations stemming from a Humane Society of the United States undercover video showing calves being kicked and poked with electric prods.

A former worker at the slaughterhouse, 37-year-old Christopher Gaudette, of Grand Isle, has pleaded not guilty to animal cruelty charges.

Perretta was arrested last week in New York on fugitive from justice charges. A message left for his lawyer was not immediately returned.

Sounds like a PETA fiasco. What do they expect the guy (worker) to do. or say, .Awwww, come on nice cow, just because you are about to become a Mac Donald burger is no reason to resist your obligations. Aaw come on cow or I will tell your mother and she will send you to bed without your bale of straw. Or how about go meet your fate cow or I am going to call the Police and Authorities. and you will be a fugitive from justice Someone should prod PETA and the humane society worker with the electric prods and then charge them with Trespassing. Bet the cow got treated better than the worker would have been if he resisted. The animal cruelty person is a fugitive from a high level of retardation.

What is this "undercover" filming? Even the Justice Department has to cross T's and dot i's to obtain a warrant? Did this Humane Society "agent" do so?

Trespassing on private property? Have we arrived at the GESTAPO state already? What do these people think goes on in a "slaughter" house? Naw, I doubt Humane Society people eat steaks and burgers and hot dogs and such. They're a bunch of vegans, I guess. They're also people with a lot of spare time on their hands.

There's a lot of humans (like in "people", those individuals the animal lovers accuse of cruelty) who need help in today's times. Hunger and poverty in this country and some guy running a packing house that provides work is a fugitive from justice! Go figure!

Morons. The guy is a scumbag. Just because the animal is going to be killed doesn't mean it should be mistreated. WTF is wrong with you?

Theres a super thin line between abusing defenseless animals and abusing defenseless children.

Defending sick f***s like this equates to the defense of child rapists and child abusers.
