Skip to comments.Muslims protest over pet food factory that could 'rain down' pork
Posted on 07/30/2007 9:22:40 PM PDT by Pikamax
A group of Muslims have opposed plans for a pet food factory to be built as possible pork emissions will violate their religious rights.
Butchers Pet Care could shelve plans for a factory in Coton Park, near Rugby, because angry Asian families have complained to their residents' association about pork smells drifting into their garden.
Muslim residents in the area also claim the pork will effectively "rain down" on their homes and gardens after the factory's 100ft chimney has pumped the meat extracts into the atmosphere.
The Coton Park Residential Association said they have received complaints from Muslims - who are directed to not eat pork by the Qur'an - and are taking the matter very seriously.
One family who live less than 100 yards from the proposed factory, but who did not wish to be identified, said: "A significant proportion of meats used in the pet foods processes are pig meat.
"Our religion expressly forbids us to consume pig meat in any form.
"Because of the way in which this meat material will leave the factory and give that the area can be 'rained upon' we will be consuming pork via inhalation of this 'rain'.
"Not only that but our clothes will be contaminated by pork."
Another family from the Coton Park housing estate said: "The owners of the proposed factory do not dispute the claim that meat extracts of pork will be pumped into the atmosphere via a 100ft chimney.
"They have said there will not be any chemical treatment proposed to treat the meat extracts before they leave the factory."
Association spokesperson Grant Scott said: "Several families have complained because of the smell of the pork, and also if the factory is cooking with it, pork particles and odour could rain down on them from the chimney at some point.
"It was something we hadn't taken on board before but it's definitely important and is a very delicate issue.
"If Muslims are unhappy about it, then Jews may complain for the same reason, and Hindus may complain because of their beliefs about cows being sacred animals.
"There is a significant Muslim element in our area, so there is a potential problem."
Another Muslim family added: "A Muslim is obliged to be clean spiritually, mentally and physically.
"Abstention from eating flesh of swine is one of the obligations a Muslim must observe to attain purity of the soul and of the human nature.
"Therefore, we believe that not only will we be contaminated but also our faith by the owners of this proposed pet food plant.
"In this country we are allowed the right to follow our religion and religious beliefs. By allowing this plan to go ahead our religious rights are being swept to one side for what appears to be economic greed.
"We feel sure that there are other areas where this factory could be built that would not impact on us or others like us."
The Environmental Health Agency are investigating the potential affects, with a decision about the factory's future due in September.
The pet food company said there is an 'almost 99% guarantee' the smell of pork would not reach the Coton Meadows residential area.
A statement from Butchers Pet Care said: "The majority of our natural products are beef and poultry.
"Pork ingredients account for less than 10% of our range.
"At Coton Park we plan to introduce state-of-the-art odour extraction through the chimney stack.
"An environmental impact report has already concluded that emissions at the proposed Coton Park site should not have an adverse impact on air quality and odour levels.
"We would like to reiterate that we do not burn any animal materials."
Think maybe that we could get one of these giant factories in the USA so it can spew pork stuff all over the country?
Pork “squeezins” chase away head choppers!
Build it with large, industrial-scale atomizer units. Roughly the size of those cooling towers at Three Mile Island.
Right, but they have no problem targeting and killing innocent people. Baby killing evil is what their ignorant religion is.
Our military needs the S (Slamnation) bomb, i.e. a bomb consisting of flash dried pork ground at least a thousand times finer than the flash powder used in flinklock rifles, an d compressed air.
You read something like this and think it if parody or from “The Onion” or that it is April 1st. Now the easily seething are afraid to inhale rain “contaminated” with pork products?
You cannot make this up. Can you?>

Friendly advice to the Brits: First off, quit calling them Asians. Call them what they are..middle easterners. They are NOT the same as Japanese or Chinese. And second thing is this: grow a collective set and tell these NON British people to shut the hell up or go back where they came from. The mu slims are NOT your friends.
Someone will cave and give in and ignore the majority to appease the minority.....again.
If a rugrider moved in next to me I would be smoking hog 24/7/365.
Maybe the Pakistanis should consider building fallout shelters.
It's official. I almost started to write "if they cave in on this, that's officially the end of England." But simply thinking that it's "important" and "delicate" is bad enough. England is lost.
"There is a significant Muslim element in our area, so there is a potential problem."
Quite right old sport. You've *almost* got it.
Clean mind. Clean body. Take your pick.
They don't mind torture or murder. Go figure.
Oh dear, and with a good wind, tiny amounts of these pork fumes could waft over the whole country. The poor Muslims won’t be safe anywhere, and will have to go back where they came from.
Full steam ahead with that processing plant!
As it was pointed out in a previous thread, they’ll be bitching about pork-like-smells from every restaurant they walk past.
It’s coming, people. Get ready. And be ready to BEAT THEM BACK!!!
It amazes me to think that this effing cult and all of the evil, death, suffering, and turmoil it causes could be brought to a precipitous end with one load of Hormel scraps dropped from an airplane on 2 key cities in Saudi. In WWII, it took the nerve to nuke 2 cities off of the map. All this requires is some barbecue. And nobody will do it.
“A well-regulated Barbecue, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Pork, shall not be infringed.”
The war on terror would be over in a month if we started dipping our bullets in pork lard, burying Islamic terrorists inside a pig carcass and using explosives made of pork renderings.
We need to make the pig the national animal of the U.S. and pork the national meat. It would also be useful to make umbrellas out of pig hides.
A factory that rains down pork?
Isn’t that called Capitol Hill?
A new Bio-Weapon discovered... LOL
yeah i seen something to the effect on shark week. its called a chum cannon.
When pigs fly.
But leftist legal scholars will say it is just a communal right to bear pork not an individual right.
Pork Fat Rules! — Emeril Lagasse
I propose new TSA rules: If you are munching pork rinds, you get waved through all the airport security checks. If pork isn’t in your diet, you can avoid removing your shoes by wearing the original Hush Puppies in brushed pigskin.
when they go outside they should just hold their breath. The world would be much nicer and peaceful place if every muzzie just held their breath whild outside...forever.
Po-ork, rain o’er meeeeeee. (apologies to The Who)
I think they should increase the numbers of pork products made in said factory. (who uses pork for pet food anyway?)
rofl! Put a pig nose on that weirdo.
They don’t believe their own nonsense about it “raining pork”. They’re just testing the mettle of the local Brits, trying to see if they can bully them around a bit. If they succeed, they will continue to bully the Brits in other areas of society, until one day they have the Brits adhering to sharia law. So this is no joking matter, it’s another stepping stone to eventual control of Europe. It’s happening here in America too. Step by calculated step, incrementally, one public school field trip to a mosque at a time, one court case victory at a time, one CAIR public relations victory at a time, they will introduce sharia law into American culture too. They won’t stop until they have what they want, and I personally don’t see enough spiritual light and collective spine in American government to stop them. In spite of all the innocent blood these butchers spill every single day of the year, people are still blind to the savagery of islam. Government still strives to create a ‘multicultural’ America, replete with a healthy population of Mohammedans to add seasoning and ‘flavor’ to the PC melting pot. Muslims are like cockroaches, once they arrive they multiply exponentially, they do their best work in the shadows of darkness, and it’s nearly impossible to get rid of them.
Dude - if there was a place where it rained bacon...
That place would be HEAVEN!
“A factory that rains down pork?
Isnt that called Capitol Hill?”
LOL - good one!
What Muslims are doing there go back to their own country.
But the prefatory clause only refers to the regulating of the temperature and humidity of the barbecue. There is nothing that prevents an individual from walking down the street with his ham right in his hand. If we interpret pork as merely a collective right, then what happens to the right to blow up GI Joes with the powder dumped out of countless Black Cat firecrackers? Are we to assume that is a right assigned only to the States? Also there is the matter of catching bluegill with doughballs. I don’t even want to go down that legislative road.
That made me LOL:)
I was thinking what if one of these "Asians" moved in next door to a person that enjoys cooking bacon for breakfast. Would the Brit have to stop cooking bacon?
And the other thing that came into my mind:
These articles, always make me crave a nice BLT.
You are very correct. Flying Imams were part of it. Assault ham sandwich was part of it. Call to prayer over the loud speaker was part of it.
Run it twenty-four, seven. It’s called freedom (what’s left of it in Britain).
