Spilled Chicken Blood

This sounds so nasty I needed to share it with the broader public. This happened in town not to far from where I live. Enjoy!

When residents of St. Marys, Ont., woke up today, some might have thought the town was the setting for a Hollywood horror flick.

The town's main street was covered in blood - literally.

Gallons of chicken blood was spilled onto Queen Street around midnight when a tanker truck spilled its load from Schneider's Poultry west of the town. full article
So why is a truck carrying chicken blood?? To render it of course. Maybe reading this will help. Taken from here.

Rendering is recycling! For over 150 years the rendering industry --- starting with the most primitive equipment --- has made a unique business of reprocessing discarded animal material (fat, bone, hide, offal) into highly-beneficial products for further use in other forms. Contrary to what you may hear elsewhere, Rothsay has a policy of not accepting companion animals or roadkill for processing.

Oh, eeeew! *shudders* Yuck! Of all the things to spill from a truck, I think that's the most disgusting! I'm glad that didn't happen near me. Yick.

That is gross! You have to wonder what it was going to be rendered into!

I had the same thought as Kitty66 so I Googled the terms render chicken blood, and your blog came up on top. Not very useful. I did later find out it's mostly used in animal feed. Still, ick!
