UNDERCOVER VIDEO (PETA link I watched it. I feel it is my responsibility to "bear witness" to any Kinship Circle letter-writing campaign. But, it is truly horrible...and I've seen a lot. The video is the truth — but only watch it if you're able to view extreme animal torture. Brenda Shoss, Kinship Circle


Norman Schlaff is the owner of Musicon, Inc. which farm-raises deer for venison and specializes in "Glatt Kosher Venison" for people of the Jewish faith who follow the dietary tradition of kosher. The only contact information we could find pertains to Musicon's "kosher venison." The website is dated 2007, so we assume the contact info is current (below).

In addition to utilizing Kinship Circle's sample letter, you may also send PETA's prepared online letter at:

Dear Mr. Schlaff,

I value religious freedom, but I am appalled by the kosher slaughter practices at Musicon, Inc. in Goshen, New York. After viewing a PETA investigator's videotape of deer killed at Musicon on August 26, 2007, I can only surmise your venison sales company chooses to ignore animal suffering.

PETA's on-site footage shows workers jerking the heads of deer back by ears and antlers to expose their throats. As one man restrains a deer, another slits the fully conscious animal's throat. The deer slumps toward the floor and a worker slams a restraint door on his head, immobilizing the animal as he bleeds to death.

One worker actually reaches inside a deer's neck gash to drag him on to the floor. "Baby, come get your mama" another utters while wrenching a deer from his metal holding pen. This deer, like the others, remains alert for more than a minute and a half after the cut.

They are all blinking and twitching. It is unacceptable to slaughter animals in a manner that causes so much terror and pain. Driving them into a constricted metal chute in a noisy chamber, twisting them by ears and antlers, kneeling on them, and closing doors on their heads are barbaric business principles.

As testament to religious mercy and empathy, please end this unspeakable cruelty now.
