Mercy For Animals Releases Horrific Cow Abuse Video

(ANIMAL ABUSE/FACTORY FARMING) Mercy for Animals (MFA) released additional footage shot at Dry Creek Dairy southwest of Murtaugh, Idaho on Tuesday. The sickening video shows a deranged dairy worker sexually abusing a cow in an attempt to get the public riled up before Idaho passes an ag-gag bill that would outlaw photographing or filming on farms without the owner’s consent. “If enacted, this legislation could harm consumers nationwide.
