Hey guys - Just a reminder to watch the language. Obviously a passionate subject (I haven't watched the video) but still need to keep it PG.

Carry on.

I don't understand...there's good people starving to death in parts of the world... And yet, these people are still ALIVE? They're lucky,cuz if I lived closer I would do anything to make they're lives a living hell. Urgh! I'm so mad.

I don't understand why people like this don't get the electric chair... Honestly, we don't need them at all, they're not doing anything great, there's plenty of honest,hard working people who should have that job.

This is disgusting. All I see is two humans taking out their anger on animals that have no means of defending themselves. Not only are not able to truly attack, they cannot escape because of the small metal containers they are often in. I do not understand why our country can't be more harsh about animal cruelty. If not for the animals, it is well known that animal abuse leads to increased rates of drug abuse, homicidal tendencies, and domestic violence. These people need to go to jail and stay there. I do not want to see them given a chance again, ever. For this I have no tolerance.

If anyone gets updates on how this case is doing, please let us all know.

That was $%^&ing disgusting! I could not have been the persone who recorded that. I woulda been grabing the rake and stabbing them with it. And those poor calves. Ugh. I want to beat them like they did those cows. Break their fingers and stab them. Hit them across the head with a metal pipe.

That guy deserves to have both his legs broke, and have the SH%$ Kicked out of him.. What goes around comes around! I am just so mad to see poor animals not treated with respect. This is part of the reason I eat organic or free rage as much at possible.. along with the health benefit. I was a butcher, and eat meat, ever animal deserves a good life, no mater how it may end.

I don't know how I made it to the whole thing, but I did. The first calf made me want to stop :(

Oh, if only I was in Ohio... they'd be removing my foot from their butt!

And I just called the Sheriff whose number is listed on he Fugly blog and left a message :)

This is so so so not the norm. I do understand when the cows try and turn in the parlor, you can't ask them to please move but a pitchfork is over the top.

I also don't understand beating the calf they are trying to tube feed.

My husband grew up on a dairy farm. We worked as a herdscouple until we had to move due to his health. You don't get milk from stressed cows.

Please people - this is NOT the normal. Don't go postal on dairy farmers - or any farmers due to these absolute frickin idiots. The majority of us truly care for our animals.

I can't see the video, which is probably just as well.

However, I agree with mls and the others who say this is not the norm.

Anyone who abuses animals, children, or someone weaker than they are needs to be locked away from society forever. They're nothing more than sociopaths.
