Views on the proposed slaughterhouse
By virture of your position as a source seeking truth and sharing these facts with your readers, you are entitled to discern my views on the proposed slaughterhouse being planned for Navarro County and in my front door (home) of Ellis County.
Thus, it is the purpose of this letter to inform you of my very strong opposition regarding this butchery.
There are several reasons why I am against this animal plant.
Among the reasons which concern me and other individuals are the following:
1) The only road to this site is in a deplorable condition. The increased heavy truck traffic would only increase this grievous situation.
The roads will not be able to handle this increased heavy truck traffic.
Considering that the only road to this proposed plant is in Ellis County, will Navarro County build a road to this facility, and if so, when? How much money will it take to build this new road?
2) The odor from this proposed plant would absolutely be horrific and the environment around this facility would be filled with the pungent stink.
The neighborhood would greatly suffer with this smell!
The animal waste would be an ideal location for insects to breed and multiply.
These would cause major health problems for the citizens of both Ellis and Navarro Counties. In addition, other animals could easily be affected as well.
The location is such that anything would and could be easily made in this plant without being observed.
Drugs, weapons of mass destruction and other materials of terrorism could easily be produced and distributed without being seen or observed.
3) What is to happen to the animal waste and by products?
The body organs, hides and other non-edible parts will need to be properly disposed of in some way and not dumped into Chamber’s Creek, one water supply for Fort Worth.
I urge you to use all methods and means available to stop this proposed animal slaughterhouse.
It is not desired, not needed, and not wanted in our community.
Thank you, Editor, for your time and cooperation in this important matter.
