    The following is an article on the closing of a Postville, Iowa slaughterhouse...

    "In the days before the nation’s largest kosher meat company filed for bankruptcy, the company’s slaughterhouse here in northeast Iowa gradually shut down its operations, leaving angry workers without salaries or places to live, and animals caged and dying."

    What is the poultry status???

    Has anyone/anygroup intervened on behalf of the poultry???

    Rescue, animals rights groups, humane society??

    I feel for the workers, but, many have gotten help from fellow workers, housing, jobs.... but these turkeys and chickens are left...dying!!!!!

    That is so sad, I did not know that was happening with the animals. What a failure of a company.
