Dallas Slaughter House Drains Blood Into Trinity River [VIDEO]

You might not want to swim, fish or do anything recreational in the Trinity River for a while. It was discovered by some environmentalists that a pig slaughter house in Dallas’ Oak Cliff has been illegally draining it’s pig blood into a creek that feeds into the Trinity River.

Columbia Packing Co. Inc., is in some hot water and a criminal investigation has been launched into the draining of pig blood into Cedar Creek which feeds into the Trinity River, a river that flows through much of Texas. The environmental group had taken pictures of the reddish colored creek and turned them into the health department along with a formal complaint.

Federal and state agencies were called in to investigate and found an underground pipeline that drained the slaughter house blood into the creek behind the company.

The company has not welcomed Dallas City councilmen, media or even the investigating agencies onto the property. Although the agencies have legal rights to be on the property, others do not and have been asked to leave the premises.

The company has been in business for 90 years and is still operating pending the investigation by the Environmental Protection Agency, U.S. Department of Agriculture and Texas Parks and Wildlife Department.
