DENVER - After some residents living in Denver's River North neighborhood organized to get rid of the "stench of pig ears," the city responded.
The target of their disgust, Kasel Industries, which processes pig ears into doggy treats.
Nate Grover, who has lived in the area for nearly eight years, says the smell is overpowering.
"It's like a rotting dead carcass smell," said Grover. "It sucks when you have to smell something as bad as what's coming out of that factory."
In March, the Denver Department of Environmental Health issued a $500 citation against Kasel Industries for "nuisance odors," according to the citation obtained by 7NEWS.
