Bob Barker narrated a new Mercy For Animals hidden camera investigation into one of the nation’s top veal producers.
The video description on YouTube says:
The footage reveals baby calves chained by their necks inside 2-feet wide wooden stalls — so narrow they cannot turn around, walk, run, play, socialize with other animals, or engage in other basic natural behaviors for their entire lives.
Join Mercy For Animals, and Mr. Barker, in urging grocery chains Costco Wholesale and Giant Eagle to immediately remove veal from their store shelves — much of which comes from the company investigated.
UPDATE: Costco changed their policy. “Costco’s new policy requires that calves not be tethered, that their stalls be large enough to move around and lie down, and that there be at least two calves to a stall.” (source). Still no news about Giant Eagle.
