Potential halal slaughterhouse owners withdraw application

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — Plans to move a slaughterhouse into a vacant east side building died Tuesday.

Potential owners of the would-be halal slaughterhouse withdrew their application to rezone the vacant building for the shift to a slaughterhouse. East side residents voiced their concern about the project at a public meeting.

Its opponents said they didn’t want the slaughtering of animals to be in their back yards, nor in their neighborhoods.
