MFA Exposes Dairy Cow Abuse in Ohio

Mercy For Animals (MFA), who recently opened its newest national office in Dallas earlier this month, presented an undercover investigation exposing abuse occurring at Conklin Dairy Farms in Plain City, Ohio. 

Eddie Garza, the MFA Texas Campaign Coordinator, assisted with the press conference in Ohio on Tuesday and on Wednesday a worker at the farm was arrested on 12 counts of cruelty.

The undercover footage, taken over the course of April and May, documents a shocking pattern of cruelty. What’s even more disturbing is that this farm was chosen at random – which makes you wonder how many other farms harbor cruelty such as this.

Thanks to MFA for helping to bring these people to justice, and for continuing to fight for the rights of farmed animals everywhere.


Warning! The following video contains graphic and disturbing images:
