CHILE : 28 May UPDATE: Residents Riot Over Slaughterhouse 'Cochinos.'
Residents of the small village of Freirina complained about the strong foul smell for months.
Finally...they couldn't take it anymore...and rioted...blocking workers' access to the pig slaughterhouse there for 5 days.
The rendering plant is one of the largest in LatAm...located 800 kms north of Santiago.
Now...on official orders...it may take 6 months...but 500,000 pigs will be removed...to prevent a health hazard from the dying porcines.
The plant's owner...Agrosuper...finally admitted the slaughterhouse had ventilation problems.
