This seems about right for America: an Iowa family’s basement fills with blood. Real, genuine blood. The stuff had backed up from a slaughter house next door.*
Kaitlin Dahl said the company uses a catch drain to capture most of the blood during the butchering process. That blood is emptied into an offal barrel and taken away by a rendering truck.
“When you split a bone in half, there will be some excess blood that will drip on that floor,” she said. “That was allowed by the county to go down the back drain.”
Did I say good news? I meant slightly less horrible news than what’s going on in the regular news.
