DETROIT: Rotting lamb carcasses at an Islamic halal slaughterhouse are sending out a vomit-inducing stench for miles around

A dumpster at the halal market was brimming with scores of rotting lamb carcasses, plainly visible to motorists along Gratiot Avenue in what is a clear violation of state law and a risk to public health.

Motor City (h/t Rob E)  The Bodies of Dead Animals Act of 1982 requires carcasses to be burned, buried or passed off to a licensed processor within 24 hours of being slaughtered.

Witnesses said the dumpster has been full of lamb carcasses for several weeks – or longer – but it’s unclear how often they are being picked up. Images from Google Maps appear to show the dumpster full of animal carcasses.

Whatever the case, the stench could induce gags from Gratiot.

It wasn’t immediately clear who is responsible. Parked outside the dumpster was a van for Berry and Sons Islamic Slaughter House, which butchers lamb, beef and goat for Muslims in a building behind the lot at 2496 Orleans St. The business didn’t return calls for comment.
