Factory Farm Felonies

Undercover video shot by MFA leads to felony and misdemeanor charges for Texas calf factory-farm workers.

Five factory-farm workers from E6 Cattle Co. in Hart, Texas, have been charged with felonies following the release of an undercover video made by Mercy for Animals (MFA) investigators. The video showed workers bashing calves’ skulls with hammers, standing on calves’ necks, and other cruel acts. Warrants have been issued and along with the five felony charges, and two workers are also being charged with misdemeanors, says District Attorney James R. Horton. “We commend the Castro County district attorney and sheriff’s office for taking swift and decisive action in bringing animal abusers to justice,” said MFA Executive Director Nathan Runkle.
