Being called the worst abuse at a factory farm yet discovered, Mercy For Animals (MFA) shot an undercover video of cruelty at the E6 Cattle Ranch in Hart, Texas during a two week period in March, 2011.

MFA documented the following abuses:

Workers bludgeoning calves in their skulls with pickaxes and hammers — often involving 5 to 6 blows, sometimes more — before rendering the animals unconscious

Beaten calves, still alive and conscious, thrown onto dead piles

Workers kicking downed calves in the head, and standing on their necks and ribs

Calves confined to squalid hutches, thick with manure and urine buildup, and barely large enough for the calves to turn around or fully extend their legs

Gruesome injuries and afflictions, including open sores, swollen joints and severed hooves

Ill, injured and dying calves denied medical care

The budding horns of calves burned out their skulls without painkillers.

 

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.
