Veterinarian slated to testify before Congress regarding inhumane slaughter plant practices

DVM360 MAGAZINE

Washington -- A USDA veterinarian is scheduled to testify today that illegal slaughterhouse practices are jeopardizing safety standards.

Dr. Dean Wyatt, a veterinarian at the United States Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service, was expected to cite cases when inspector violations were simply overruled despite animal-welfare violations like shocking and butchering calves too weak to stand. He was slated to make the comments during testimony at the U.S. House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.
