A Culture Of Cruelty

A Culture Of Cruelty

Warning: graphic footage and language:

During a four-week investigation between April and May 2010, a Mercy For Animals’ investigator documented farm workers:

* Violently punching young calves in the face, body slamming them to the ground, and pulling and throwing them by their ears
* Routinely using pitchforks to stab cows in the face, legs and stomach
* Kicking “downed” cows (those too injured to stand) in the face and neck – abuse carried out and encouraged by the farm’s owner
* Maliciously beating restrained cows in the face with crowbars – some attacks involving over 40 blows to the head
* Twisting cows’ tails until the bones snapped
* Punching cows’ udders
* Bragging about stabbing, dragging, shooting, breaking bones, and beating cows and calves to death

  1. What punishment are these workers facing? Are they going to get away with this? Will this viedo be brought before lawmakers who are still resisting passing laws that would improve the animals’ lives? If this doesn’t get them to change their minds, I don’t know what will.

  2. Oh my God, please tell me we are making progress on this horrible treatment of precious animals. I am now a vegan and loving that but I just cried and screamed when I saw this. I live alone (well not really thankfully, have two rescued doggies. I am so sick right not I just want to turn my back on the whole human race as we let this hellish behavior continue. Thank you, all of you, who are doing their best to help our animals.
