An animal rights organization is putting up advertisements in Connecticut to remember a calf that was slaughtered in public.
The People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals are running the ads on buses in Hartford for the next four weeks to honor a calf killed behind a Home Depot in Bloomfield.
On July 13, a calf escaped the Saba Live Poultry butcher shop in Bloomfield and workers chased the animal to the back of hardware store parking lot where a worker slit the animal's throat. The halal method of killing an animal includes the cutting the throat.
The incident sparked outrage and racist comments online against the halal butcher shop.
