Is a Catfish Farm Abusing Its Fish? An Animal Rights Group Says Yes


Animal Equality investigated Simmons Farm Raised Catfish slaughterhouse, located in Yazoo City, Mississippi. Simmons is one of the largest USDA inspected catfish slaughterhouses in the U.S., supplying grocery stores Kroger, Save a Lot, and Piggly Wiggly, as well as restaurant chains Cracker Barrel and Captain D’s. Numerous instances of animal abuse and suffering were found—incidents that are in violation of existing state animal cruelty laws.
