The Pasadena, CA.-based, Hispanic-oriented Liborio Markets withdrew its plan to slaughter up to 150 chickens a day at its new retail location in Greeley, Colorado. [ Market Calls Off Request: Rancho Liborio Won't Process Chickens On-Site, Joanna Larez, Greeley Tribune, August 1, 2006]
Even though I live in Florida, I like to think I played some small part in this triumph.
When I first heard of the outrageous idea to electrocute chickens on site and then put the birds on the market shelves, as is Liborio's practice in its California stores, I emailed Kelley Dupps at the Humane Society of the United States' Washington, D.C. headquarters [e-mail] who agreed that such action would be "atrocious behavior."
Dupps then forwarded my mail to the HSUS Colorado State Director Ms. Colin Berry [ e-mail] of the Humane Society of the United States.
Bad enough that the Hispanic-themed market (its motto is "si es de alla, lo tenemos aqui"; "if it is from there, we have it here") is another sign that Colorado is overwhelmed with illegal aliens, but to disregard zoning laws for the brutal purpose of chicken slaughter indicates of how little Hispanics care about our laws or our culture.
