Sometimes you think you have seen it all and then you see something like this. From Tom Philpott at Grist:
Right now, in at least three states, meat-industry lobbyists (in league with Monsanto) are pushing legislation that would criminalize the practice of sneaking cameras onto factory farms. In the meantime, here’s the latest video, from Mercy For Animals; it was filmed in a large Texas calving operation for the dairy industry called E6. Warning: This is the roughest of these videos that I’ve ever seen; it opens with a man killing a sick calf by smashing its brains in with a pickaxe.
I am stunned, but not speechless. Videos like these are shocking, but taking them should never be illegal – doing what is depicted in the video has to be.
