Dairy Farm Arrests

A Conklin Dairy Farms worker is arrested in the wake of a Mercy For Animals exposé revealing animal abuse.

On Thursday, Conklin Dairy Farms worker Billy Joe Gregg of Delware County, Ohio, was arrested and charged with 12 counts of cruelty to animals, a second-degree misdemeanor, for animal abuse captured on film during a Mercy For Animals (MFA) undercover investigation. The factory farm fired Gregg the morning of his arrest. The exposé, released yesterday, has generated a firestorm of controversy across the country. In a statement released yesterday, representatives from Conklin Dairy Farms insisted that the neglect and abuse filmed by MFA is atypical, which conflicts with statements in the video made by workers, who brag about beating animals to death.
