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.
