It's been years since I first watched the famous undercover Peta video portraying a botched "kosher" slaughter at the Rubashkin's agriprocessors facility. The clip depicts workers not only being cruel and sloppy in their treatment of animals but also shows them conducting a halachikly forbidden act called na'a'nua. Na'a'nua is preformed by violently tugging on the trachea of an animal in order to pull free adhesion in the lung so that they will not be found during a later inspection. This practice makes properly checking the lungs impossible and is strictly forbidden under Jewish law and doing such painful thing to a live and conscious animal makes this act of kosher fraud all the more heinous and despicable.
