BE A PART OF THE PETA2 MOVEMENT

Calves Bludgeoned with Hammers

If you’ve been putting off going vegan, then I hope this is your last straw:

Mercy for Animals’ latest undercover investigation revealed extreme (disgusting and heartbreaking) cruelty to calves at E6 Cattle Co., in Hart, Texas. E6 rears calves for use on dairy farms.

MFA’s investigator saw:

  • Workers bludgeoning calves in their skulls with pickaxes and hammers—often involving 5 to 6 blows, sometimes more—before rendering the animals unconscious
  • Beaten calves, still alive and conscious, thrown onto dead piles
  • Workers kicking downed calves in the head, and standing on their necks and ribs
  • Calves confined to squalid hutches, thick with manure and urine buildup, and barely large enough for the calves to turn around or fully extend their legs
  • Gruesome injuries and afflictions, including open sores, swollen joints and severed hooves

Let me repeat myself: E6 rears calves for use on dairy farms.

That means that the money you pay for milk, cheese, and other dairy products is paying the salaries of people like this, or this, or this. If this isn’t OK with you—you have one choice: go vegan and start eating cruelty-free.

Stay loud!
-Rachel

    OMG!!! This is so terrible!!! If people don’t go vegan after reading this, then they are just as guilty as the people who actually bludgeoned those poor, innocent babies!!!!

    As a result, there’s a movement in legislation to make undercover videotaping a felony. See: http://www.issues.cc/complaints/factory-farms/e6-cattle-company-abuse There is Agri business is huge beyond what information we have access to and they give a lot of money to the politicos.

    I would be lying if I said I can’t believe this is happening…I always new that humans can be cruel…but to drop this low is impossible to wrap my thoughts around. I’m only fourteen years old, and I don’t know that much about the world but I can tell you that it’s people like this who shed off negative behavior to society. They make it seem like humans are superior to all other living creatures. Yes, we top the food chain and have a high population rate, but that does not give us the right to be jack asses about it and torture other creatures.
    I don’t know if this will end soon or not, but I have a pretty good feeling that these bad humans will not be heading upstairs when they die.

    Absolutely sick, i’m vegetarian but am now going vegan, don’t know how but will learn by looking up recipes. I haven’t even watched the video and cryed as read everyones comments, i can’t watch as it will break my heart. These poor defensless little babies, how can people be so cruel, they’re not human they’re the demons and they need to be tortured just like they’re doing to these babies. I can’t understand, why we have to petition to stop all this, why the hell can’t they just be stopped, if you were cruel to a dog or cat they would fine you and put you in prison and never allowed to keep animals again so whats so different with this. It just makes me sick and they should hang drawn and quartered. Bastards.

    And people wonder why we vegans are so “stuck up”. These videos bring out so much hate in me. From all your comments, I’m glad I’m not alone in that.

    I don’t understand how some people can be so completely evil and heartless. Seriously they must have something wrong in the head because normal people just don’t behave like that.

    Within the first few seconds I was crying already. It’s so fucking horrible that this shit is even happening, like why aren’t they getting persecuted for this? I’m vegan and am trying to get my family to convert and I showed this them but they still think that this just happened once, and they also want to know why no one is being punished for this.

    Heartbreaking…speechless…tears…I’m SO proud to be vegan! It isn’t a difficult transition from vegetarian to vegan, if you keep reminding yourself WHY you are doing it. Reasons like this are why.
    Hi Rachel! Thanks for all you do! Is there anything else we can do to try & stop this, like contact E6 Cattle Co.??? I’d love to help directly, even though I’m in L.A., not Texas. *hugs*

    I couldn’t watch the whole thing. It made me want to vomit. This is vile and I hope the people in this video get punished (and not just a slap on the wrist). This is barbaric, sick and twisted. My heart goes out to these and every animal that has ever been hurt.

    It’s been really hard for me to go Vegan but I am Vegetarian (have been for almost 2 years) and I didn’t even have to watch the video, I read what happend and I’m utterly disgusted. I am definitely going Vegan. No one would let their own baby be slaughtered this way or at all for that matter.

    I drink milk and eat cheese..i feel so selfish. This is so wrong, this makes me feel like hell is really here on earth. If these people could do this to these poor defenseless babies..thats what they are..BABIES, than they could easily and mercylessly do this to ANYONE. Im speechless…this is a holocaust

    I’m…speechless. The hoof was falling off the cow…it made me cry and want to throw up at the same time. And I’m vegan…I showed this to my family and they’re finally all going vegan now. We were vegetarians until I made the change and this just changed their minds too…

    As a kid, I was and am still curious about the great big world we live in, and I thought nothing of animal abuse. But for some or no completely good reasons, I was getting sicker and weaker. Then one day I heard about PETA while I was on the internet. I got a little curious, and I went veg after finding out meat was one of the reasons I was sicker. Right now, I'm still trying to give up meat for my health. But I'm getting there!
