Dairy Farm Abuse

Mercy For Animals release an undercover exposé revealing abhorrent animal abuse on an Ohio dairy farm.

On Wednesday, animal-rights group Mercy For Animals (MFA) released undercover video showing abominable abuse of dairy cows at Conklin Dairy Farms in Plain City, Ohio. MFA employees filmed these abuses during a four-week investigation between April and May, where they witnessed farm workers repeatedly punching young calves in the face, using pitchforks to stab cows, cruelly beating confined cows with crowbars, and kicking downer cows in the face and neck. Along with documenting clearly illegal abuses, the video also captures farm workers bragging about beating animals to death. MFA is petitioning local government officials to prosecute farm employees and the facility.
