These videos are one reason I don't drink milk. I've interned at dairy facilities. No, they are not all like this. Enough of them are, though. Even if they were all nice, I would not drink milk. Not when they remove babies the day they are born. Not when males are raised for veal. Not when I don't need the breast milk of another species to survive.
I know not all of you will agree with me. I generally avoid the veganism topic on this blog, because most of you a) aren't vegan and b) read this blog for Pit Bull related stuff. But veganism is an integral part of who I am, of what I do. It's as important to me as protecting dogs who look like Mina.
I could not finish watching this video. I adore cows. I have special bonds with several of the cows at the sanctuary. To see them abused in such an egregiously cruel manner breaks my heart.
Here is my prediction: Nothing major will happen to these workers. They would encounter harsher penalties if the animals in question were dogs and cats. They would certainly be in prison as I write this if the animals in question were human beings. These workers are dangerous - to cows/calves as much as to other human beings.That much is sure. Here is one recent article from ABC News.
