Kudos to Mercy for Animals!
According to the prosecutor in Marysville, Ohio, several employees at Conklin Dairy Farms were caught on camera attacking some of the 200 cattle raised for their milk. A spokesperson for the prosecutor said the main perpetrator has been arrested. Billy Joe Gregg, Jr., is charged with 12 misdemeanor counts of cruelty to farm animals, but more arrests are expected.
"Much of the abuse is malicious and sadistic and is a clear violation of Ohio’s anti-cruelty statutes," said Nathan Runkle from Mercy for Animals.
In my view a bit of an understatement. There needs to be more criminal liability to "people" who both abuse animals and abuse their customers – e.g. Stewart Parnell and the Peanut Corporation of America.
