*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:
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.
