I got precisely 22 seconds in and had to stop the video as I couldn't watch any further. There are sick people out there and animals are helpless and defenceless. They say serial killers usually start by abusing animals, truly disturbing. I just don't understand what possesses someone to do these types of things?

All horses deserve, at least once in their lives, to be loved by a little girl.

This guy was a member of the U.S Millitary - retired. Then he became a Police Officer...I dred to think about what he did to the public when he was able to get his disgusting, demented hands on them.

He wants to become an Ohio State Trouper - looks like that isn't happening now!

My FIL runs a Dairy Farm of his own and he says that the rules and the regulations are very strict, and so are the rules on abuse. So now that this mans inbred behaviour's have been made knowledge to the public, I highly doubt that he will be making $ off of his farm - that is, if he still has it.

He has 12 charges on him for this case, and he has been scentenced 3 months per charge. So he is in prison for 3 yeras. Not long enough I say, and I do believe that the governemnt needs to enforce much stricter laws on animal abuse.

This man should be in jail for life, enjoying the abuse from his fellow inmates.

I found that very hard to watch, it was discusting.

I agree that there shouldnt be a ban in dairy farming or horse slaughter, but regulations should be tightened. I deffinately disagree with the video's 'Ditch Dairy' slogan, there's is not need to ban it, just control it.

I live in the English country side and live near and know many dairy farmers, they do not treat their cows like that, they love them, really love them and love their jobs too.

That was animal cruelty to exteme and I dont even know why people like that are even allowed to keep animals. The way they were acting and the way they were talking like they enjoyed it... I dont know why they are still allowed to keep those animals and why they got into it in the first place, they should be locked up, they are insane.

Keep your feet on the ground when your head's in the clouds.

i am very pro slaughter, we raise animals for consumption so that we can survive and live in a healthy way however we dont need to be cruel about it. i work several months outa the year on a cattle ranch these cattle are beef cattle and they are tough to control and to move unless you know how they think but just because they are difficult and dont understand us doesnt mean that we cant understand them, most livestock are wild, deffenatly not broke, and therefore we need to understand that they get scared and are only reacting to their instincs. It is the owner of the animals that needs to be responsible in the way they treat and house thier animals and thier responsiblity to hire understanding and responsable people to help care for those animals. the public needs to understand that more regulations need to be put into action, banning and closing of these facilities are not the answer!

Don't breed, buy. Don't buy, adopt.

I was a vegetarian for 3 years, a vegan for 1, and stuff like this makes me want to resort back to my old ways of Silk, Morning Star, and Boca.

OK so I got about 40 seconds into that video and had to stop it. I am like, shaking I am so disgusted and angry. How could anyone treat any animal like that? I don't get it.

I live in Ohio and I'm disgusted by this. I watched the clip with a friend, and she literally passed out. I was literally shaking. I have no idea why I continued to watch the entire clip. A friend of mine worked in one of the Ohio egg farms and quit after the first night after she saw the abuse of the chickens. But as for cows? They don't do anything. They stand, eat, and poop. I'm embarrassed that this was happening in my state, just one county over from my home. It's disgusting.

Oh my god, that is awful, it's not even like any of the things those men are doing have a point to them, the guy is punching the cows in the utter and stabbing them with a pitch fork for amusement plain ol' fun! Sick..

People like the men in this video need to be psychologically evaluated, and laid off from there job..

Good Lord. I watched exactly 52 seconds and had to turn it off. I'm a proud meat and dairy consumer who lives close to her food, and that turns my stomach.

My family owns and operates a small beef farm (~20 head), and I personally know several small-scale beef producers and local butchers, and the comfort and safety of the cattle at every stage of production is paramount. I know of many dairy operations in the area as well, and can't imagine any of the cattle businesses treating their livestock that way.

Twisted people like that give humane and well-run farms and butchers a bad name.

I have had the same reaction to the video as other posters, I remember the previous thread where it was posted.

However, I think the OP has linked two hot button topics that I'm not sure it makes sense to link.

The video shows out and out sociopathic animal abuse. Not neglect, not from ignorance, but agressive, malicious abuse. The fact that it occured at a dairy barn is mostly coincidental; the abuse itself has nothing to do with dairy farming as a practice. Dairy cows in general have a pretty nice life while they're producing.

Horse slaughter, and other forms of livestock slaughter for food, *are* part of farming practice. We raise cows, pigs and chickens for food and a farmer must do so in the most cost efficient way possible. While Americans don't consume a lot horse meat as food, the fact that there are slaughter plants in Canada and Mexico is because there is a demand for horse meat, and that we have a huge supply of unwanted horses to fill the demand. If slaughter for food consumption is not done quickly and humanely, or if the animals aren't raised or transported in an acceptable ways, we can address that in a number of ways.

The solution to that horrible video is criminal prosecution for the abuser.

The solution to ojections to horse slaughter and livestock slaughter for human consumption is legislation on farming practice and slaughter conditions, and educating consumers to create a demand for cruelty free, organic, grass fed or free range meats or to limit demand by encouraging vegetarianism and veganism.
