About 300 animal rights activists gathered in Tel Aviv on Monday – International Cruelty Against Animals Day – to protest abuse that has allegedly gone on in Tnuva's Adom-Adom brand slaughterhouse in Beit She'an.

The protest follows a criminal investigation launched this weekend against Tnuva by the Environmental Protection Ministry and the Beit She'an police, after the television program Kolbotek on Reshet aired an expose on the facility Thursday night.

Showing workers prodding cattle with electric shockers, beating them and dragging them by the legs with forklifts, the program said that the abuse was rampant at the site.

In response to the program and the resultant investigation, Adom-Adom CEO Erez Wolf had stressed that the company "unequivocally condemns this behavior" and detailed a number of steps that had been taken against employees who had partaken in these actions.

"Abuse is not kosher," the protesters chanted, according to the group Anonymous for Animal Rights. "The Tnuva CEO must resign."
