New MFA investigation into an Ohio Dairy Farm- Graphic

Please be aware that this video contains graphic images of cruelty to animals. This is some of what the investigators witnessed. Please go to Mercy For Animals Blog to learn more.

    • 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

After viewing the footage, Dr. Bernard Rollin, distinguished professor of animal science at Colorado State University, stated: "This is probably the most gratuitous, sustained, sadistic animal abuse I have ever seen. The video depicts calculated, deliberate cruelty, based not on momentary rage but on taking pleasure through causing pain to cows and calves who are defenseless."
