I am outraged , as many of you are, by the video released earlier this week by Mercy For Animals, exposing the horrific abuse of dairy cows and calves. Thousands of people are calling for this farm to be shut down and the perpetrators to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. As soon as I saw this video, the first question that came to mind was “How can we save these cows and calves?” We hit the phones and sent a letter to local authorities involved in the investigation, including the Union County Humane Society, to see if we could help in any way.
I am pleased to report that we are now working together with the Union County Humane Society to try to bring the cows and calves brutally abused in this video to safety. We do have an uphill climb ahead of us, though, as current Ohio laws make it difficult to seize the animals, but rest assured that we are doing everything we can to move this case along. More to report next week!
