Cruelty at New York's Largest Dairy Farm





A newly released Mercy For Animals investigation is pulling back the curtains on the largest dairy factory farm in New York State - Willet Dairy in Locke. The investigation, which broke last night on ABC's World News Tonight and Nightline, is exposing millions of Americans to the hidden cruelty common in the dairy industry.

In early 2009 an MFA undercover investigator worked at the mega-dairy, secretly documenting egregious acts of animal cruelty, including neglect, with a hidden camera.

Thankfully, compassionate consumers can choose to withdraw their support of these abusive industries by adopting a vegan diet.

Each time we eat we can choose kindness over cruelty. Visit ChooseVeg.com for dairy-free recipes.

Evidence gathered during the investigation reveals:

* Cows with bloody open wounds, prolapsed uteruses, pus-filled infections, and swollen joints, apparently left to suffer without veterinary care

* "Downed" cows those too sick or injured to even stand left to suffer for weeks before dying or being killed

* Workers hitting, kicking, punching, and electric-shocking cows and calves

* Calves having their horns burned off without painkillers, as a worker shoved his fingers into the calves' eyes to restrain them

* Calves having their tails cut off a painful practice condemned by the American Veterinary Medical Association as cruel and unnecessary

* Newborn calves forcibly dragged away from their mothers by their legs, causing emotional distress to both mother and calf

* Cows living in overcrowded sheds on manure-coated concrete flooring

* Workers injecting cows with a controversial bovine growth hormone, used to increase milk production

Undercover Video in New York's Largest Dairy Farm

this is the most rediculous video i have ever seen, the people who produced this are retarded. everything in that video can be explained. the dairy indestry is hurting as it is, then people like you put these vidio's on and it hurts us even more. working with animals four times your size is very dangerous and employees and farmers are injured constantly, do a video on cruelty of people by cows, then maybe you'll understand why we hit cows. get your foot stepped on by a 2000 pound animal, or run into a gate. they are very sweet animals, but can get wild at times.we don't just beat or abuse these cows, we just have to show athority, or we can be seriously hurt or worse. think of that the next time you do a report on farming. i am repulsed at this video. thanks for ruining my evening.

Brady, there are many more undercover films just like this one, and the people who make these films and report on these atrocities are far from "retarded"...

If it is such a dangerous occupation, it might be wise for you to find another type of employment where you will not suffer from bodily harm, or be implicated in an animal cruelty lawsuit as well.

From what you wrote on your profile page you just joined Think Atheist so that you could comment on this video... You might like to Google to find the many, many other websites and videos that deal with the problem of factory dairy farms and comment on them as well. You have work cut out for you....

Good luck!
