*WARNING* Not for the light of heart *WARNING* Graphic - Abuse at Conklin Dairy Farm

Copied from the Fugly blog. I am posting this to raise awareness and hope to get those behind this video put behind bars for life. One can wish, right?

*WARNING* THE FOLLOWING POST, LINK, AND VIDEO CONTAINS EXTREMELY GRAPHIC IMAGES AND DESCRIPTIONS. *WARNING*
The video in the link is EXTREMELY disturbing. I did not make it past 0:16. Many on another BB did not make it past 3 seconds. The first few seconds, even, are enough to make even an iron stomach turn.

Please note, I am not against farming or dairy operations. I enjoy my milk, eggs, meat, veggies... everything just as much as the next omnivore person. What is in the video is abuse, plain and simple, and those behind it need to be brought to justice.


OT, but everyone in America should see this one. Fugly Horse of the Day

Quoted from the blog:
Quote:
WARNING: Extremely graphic, unpleasant video. Not appropriate for kids, hell, not really appropriate for anybody but we need to do something about it and that is why I am posting it.
I am not opposed to drinking milk. This is not an “animal rights” issue. This is about:
1) having the DECENCY to treat meat/dairy animals in a CIVILIZED way while they are alive
2) NOT doling out pain because it is FUN for you
3) NOT letting the public believe milk comes from happy cows or some such Madison Avenue crap
This is at Conklin Dairy Farms in Plain City, Ohio. If you have a problem with this, please call Sheriff Nelson at 937-645-4102 and request that these individuals be prosecuted criminally. While you’re at it, call your Congressman and ask why these ***** got $36,000 in federal farm subsidies. Your tax dollars at work!
As always, a polite and succinct call is the most effective. Yelling or bad language is not appropriate. I know how you feel. I feel the same. You are welcome to post here that these individuals should have their testicles ripped off with a carving knife, and I will agree, but when calling the police or elected officials, holding your temper is a MUCH more effective technique. This is very simple: These people need to go to prison. They have broken the law and deserve the maximum penalty under the law. It is your right to call and ask about the status of this investigation, but you must be polite. Remember, the police see people every day who do this stuff and worse to children. They have a lot on their plates. Still, we want this prosecuted – there is no excuse for any other outcome!

As always, I must give huge kudos to the person who was incredibly brave and went in there wired up. I don’t know if you all realize how dangerous that was. These kind of people will happily bang YOU on the head and go, oops, accident. I doubt we will ever find out his/her name but if you read this, I have nothing but the utmost respect and admiration for you.

I watched the whole video and never have I felt this angry before. I had to run to the bathroom to throw up because of how sick the torture these poor cows were going through was. If I ever had a chance to get my hands on those sick *******s who are doing this...

well ****..i'm right beside Ohio. I watched the whole thing, and oh, guess what they have punching bags, kick pads, etc etc for?? Anger maybe? Coz hell, I think someone needs to sit in a padded room with them. >.o
It's ridiculous, I mean really..you can't take care of what makes you a living and keeps you out from under a **** bridge? Ugh and to think some people could ever deserve another chance at anything, I'd love to beat every last bit of him out their nasty bodies. -.o;;

Well, I watched all of it.

My idea to cure animal abuse? Anything that these dumb idiots do to the animals should be done to them? They like smashing a cow's head with their foot? Great. We have these great things called stilettos that would go nicely with their face. They like poking a cow in the stomach with a pitchfork? Great. Let's see how their fat ass bellies can take it. They like to punch cows in the utters? Great. We can take a high heels to their balls also.

The nerve of some people. I just don't get it. And the sad part is, that is not the only farm that kind of stuff is happening at. It's happening everywhere.

I agree with your post, Tennessee, but I do disagree with one bit - it is not happening everywhere. This is not the norm; it's disgusting, but it isn't the norm.

I'm...shaking.

Believe me, I can handle a lot, but..I didn't even watch the entire thing (and not only because my computer wouldn't stream half of it).

I-I don't even know what to say. These people are psychopaths, and freaks like this scare the daylights out of me. For me it's not even: oh, the poor innocent cow-though the treatment towards them in this vid makes me furious-it's the fact that someone does this sort of thing for fun. These guys need to be put away. For a long time. I'm not PETA or animal rights activist by any means, but I also am completely against going out and hurting something-animal or human-for fun. I can handle seeing blood and guts, I can handle seeing injury...but why would you do it for enjoyment?

That's all I can say right now. I'm still livid.
