    A hearing will be held for a Boston supermarket Tuesday after a goat carcass was brought to the store to be butchered.

    City officials cited America's Food Basket in Mattapan after a video of the carcass being brought into the supermarket was posted on YouTube.

    The video showed the meat being unloaded from a pickup truck and taken in the store by an employee.

    The store manager said he's "embarrassed" by the video and apologized.

    Boston Inspectional Services said butchering and processing meat for private parties is not allowed.
