'Fuckin Tired of this Calf'

Profile photo of Rachelle-O

Posted May 26, 2010 by Rachelle Owen



A recent Mercy for Animals investigation (taken between April and May of this year) shows dairy farmers in Ohio body slamming young cows to the ground, punching them in the face repeatedly, and pulling them to the ground by their ears. It also shows farmers maliciously beating restrained cows in the face with crowbars—some attacks involving over 40 blows to the head.

It’s easy to get angry—but don’t just be angry. DO SOMETHING! This happens because (and ONLY because) people continue to drink milk. This isn’t an isolated case, and if you eat dairy, you are paying someone out there, on a farm, like these guys, to abuse animals for you. There is a vegan alternative for everything—from sour cream to ice cream, and there’s no excuse good enough to pay your money for someone to hurt an animal.

Stay loud!

    […] 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 […]

    This milk has been brought to you by a cow who’s been stomped in the head, stabbed with a pitchfork, gouged in the eyes, and basically beaten within an inch of her life. I hope your milk mustache of brutality tastes good. Got Brutality? Where’s your pitchfork?

    I still can’t believe he was only charged with misdemeanors. This makes my faith in humanity take a new dive.

    Because of PETA I have been vegetarian for almost three months now and have always been able to handle the videos they post. As for this one I had to stop it at 1:14. It stumps me how someone could be so cruel to a living, breathing creature. I wish someone could treat him like that just to show him how it feels….This really makes you wonder f you should go all out and be vegan.

    mmk. 😐 I’m done with Dairy. I’ve been a vegitarian since I was nine years old and never really thought about going vegan until a few months ago.
    If I were those cows I would have kicked him the the face. What was he doing that for? Because he was angry?
    …People can be really thick sometimes.

    While I cried and couldn’t watch the whole video, it spurred me to further action. I’m vegan and have been for most of my life, however I’ve been a “dietary vegan”. A “dietary vegan” is someone who still uses products of the animal industry, however doesn’t consume animal products.
    Here and today, that is ending. I’m putting my full beliefs into practice, and I’m not being talked out of it by anyone. I’m ditching the shower products, cosmetics, hair stuff, household cleaners, etc. that contain animal ingredients. I’m getting rid of that leather that was given to me as a gift. What a gift. I never thought of it before, but leather makes more money for the animal murder industry than does meat. Wow. Sobering reality.
    I also have a coat that has fur around the hood. I thought it was fake, and without looking at the label, I bought it. I wore it for 2 years before realizing that it was REAL. I’m so disturbed. That coat is going to PETA for demonstrations or to be splashed with red paint and given to the homeless. I’m also going to demonstrate against fur.
    For fellow vegans out there, we’re not innocent either. Chances are, we’re not careful in some way. Maybe you too buy regular products, or don’t check to see if it was tested on animals, or bought a coat with fur around the hood. We can stop that. We’re not innocent unless we do. There’s blood all over that stuff too. Let’s put our beliefs into practice and stop being hypocrites.

    This video is appalling! I just don’t understand how somebody can do something like this to a living creature. I am a vegetarian right now and I am trying to find more on becoming a vegan. Because this just f****** sickens me! I live in Ohio and if there would be anything I could do to help I would be glad to!! :)

    how in the hell can you treat an animal like that? animals can’t talk, so i don’t see why they yell at the poor cows. and abusing them doesn’t do crap. if i was a cow, i would kick them right in the face a couple of times.): we must do something about this!! ):

    Also I’m going vegan just because of this video, hope it works out. I never exactly knew what I was supporting, I’ve been a vegetarian for 2 years but thought I was already doing a lot for animals. Boy was I wrong. Again, I hope it works out for me. I’ve tried it before and I couldn’t stick with it.
