On October 30, 2009, the HSUS revealed sickening scenes filmed by their undercover investigator who worked as a floor cleaner for 7 weeks at Bushway Packing, Inc., a veal slaughterhouse plant in Grand Isle, Vermont. Day-old calves are seen being kicked, beaten, and electrically shocked as they struggle in vain to stand; workers angrily cursing as the tormented animals collapse to the ground, and a baby calf was carved up and skinned alive while a USDA FSIS (Food Safety Inspection Services) Inspector stood by and watched. 5 months later and the Vermont Attorney General's Office has failed to take criminal action against the workers for clear violations of the Humane Methods of Slaughter Act. http://hsus.typepad.com/wayne/2009/10...
On March 4, 2010, Wayne Pacelle testified at a Congressional hearing before the House Oversight Committees Domestic Policy Subcommittee, chaired by Rep. Dennis Kucinich, wherein Mr. Pacelle spotlighted the USDA's inaction for failing to shut the facility down when the inspector found workers butchering live baby calves. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vvBslj...
Dr. Wyatt, a public health veterinarian employed with the USDAs Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) for more than 18 years, testified at the same Congressional hearing that on three separate occasions he brought to his superiors attention (under both past and present administrations) that Bushway was slaughtering live animals, among other horrific acts and violations of the Humane Methods of Slaughter Act.
Dr. Wyatt was told to be quiet and threatened with losing his job. Dr. Wyatt subsequently became a whistleblower. Under this administration and thanks to Rep. Dennis Kucinich, Dr. Wyatt and other inspectors not taking bribes from the slaughterhouse foremen, can now shut down any slaughterhouse without fear of retaliation from corrupt USDA higher-ups on the take.

If there is one person in Congress who will take definitive action against the obscene acts of cruelty inflicted upon animals destined for the food supply, it is Dennis Kucinich. As a vegan, he had this to say at the close of the hearing: "I don't eat meat. I don't eat chicken. I don't eat fish. I think the Humane Methods of Slaughter act is an oxymoron, a contradiction in terms." "However, for those Americans who do consume those food products and who rely on the government to make sure that those products are safe, this subcommittee will relentlessly pursue the food safety issues, and the industry can count on that."
