needs our help. They recently sent an undercover investigator to secretly document the cruelty that exists on this Texas farm called the E6 Cattle Company. And now legislature are trying to criminalize undercover photography of animal cruelty and make it a felony to shoot video documenting what is happening to these helpless animals.
Why are politicians afraid to document the way our animals are treated? Are they afraid to expose the truth. Afraid for Americans to see the living conditions and treatment of the foods we eat?
Workers at the E6 Cattle Company took hammers, pickaxes and bashed the skulls of calves. They dragged the calves by their ears, stood on their necks and dropped down onto them. They burn their horns off their heads without any pain meds what so ever. Calves are kept in crates that are so tiny and filled with urine and feces. The calves that are sick and injured are just left to suffer until they die. One worker was caught on tape referencing to the sick calves saying "We don`t treat those calves. No medicine, no nothing".
Sen. Jim Norman
a Republican in Florida wants to make taking of photos or videos on a farm without the owners consent a felony. It is these type of undercover videos that uncovers these types of abuses. I guess he believes in blaming the messenger!
Now states that largely depend on agriculture like Iowa, Indiana, Missouri and Nebraska want to follow Sen. Jim Norman and also create a law to make photography in a factory farm a first degree felony.
Americans deserve to know how our animals are raised, my God this is the food we put in our bodies, in our children's bodies, why should it be a secret?
What is even more shocking is that there is no governmental agency responsible to look over these factory farms so there is no supervision to these places. I thought maybe the USDA had responsibility in farm factories but they do not. There is no one to stop these place from abusing these animals.
