Animal cruelty charges filed against Adom Adom workers
For those who don’t remember, last fall Kolbotek showed a video exposing graphic scenes of animal abuse at the Adom Adom slaughterhouse in Beit Shean. This week, criminal charges were filed against the manager of the slaughterhouse line, his deputy, and two contract employees for their egregious behaviour against animals.
Tnuva responded: “Adom Adom condemns the behavior of animal abuse and condemned these unacceptable actions immediately when they were discovered. To repeat and emphasize, since the exposure of these distressing cases, Adom Adom has taken meaningful measures including dismissing the factory’s manager, ending the work of the contract employees mentioned in the article, improving work procedures and others – in order to prevent the recurrence of similar incidents.
“A draft of the indictment was received by Adom Adom and it is being thoroughly reviewed. The two employees mentioned within have been released on leave, and in no case will return to work with animals.
Adom Adom will continue to raise its standard of operational excellence and ensure the excellent quality of its products to consumers.”
