PETA Requesting Investigation into Countrystyle Meats


   People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) is asking Lawrence County State’s Attorney Michael Strange to investigate Countrystyle Meats outside of Sumner following a report of a recent violation of cruelty to animals. PETA obtained a recent USDA report revealing the violation involving the shooting of a steer in the head twice. PETA officials say they want criminal charges filed as appropriate against the facility and the worker responsible for the shooting.
