NYC Health Commissioner Mary Bassett Misleads Public About Legality of Kaporos Chicken Massacre
The Commissioner NYC's Department of Health, Dr. Mary Bassett, misled an audience at Columbia University by suggesting that the courts have affirmed the legality of Kaporos and that "no disease signals associated with this practice." Kaporos is an annual ritual sacrifice of chickens that takes place on public streets during Yom Kippur.
