Don't Get Angry, Go Vegan!
Yesterday we showed you a video of dairy farm workers punching, hitting, clubbing, and kicking young calves in the face. Many of you are really pissed—understandably—at the men in the videos, and we wanted to let you know that yesterday, police in Ohio arrested who they believe to be one of the men, and he’s been charged with 12 counts of misdemeanor cruelty to animals.
Yep—misdemeanor, even after the video showed a man believed to be him sadistically and violently beating animals for no reason. Obviously, any punishment is great, but it’s important to note that there is NO federal law to protect these cows from what happened to them.
Cows, pigs, chickens and other animals suffering on factory farms are being used up and killed for profit, and even when neglected, beaten and abused, little is done to seek justice. That’s where YOU come in.
Getting angry won’t do much for animals—if you buy dairy products, animals need you to take personal responsibility for supporting an industry that thinks that mutilating, abusing and torturing animals is OK. If people didn’t drink milk (a product that is unhealthy and unnatural to consume) these abuses wouldn’t happen.
Every dollar spent on dairy products funds cruelty to animals. If you want to stick up for animals on factory farms—GO VEGAN. It’s the only way.
