Rampant Cruelty to Dairy Cows at California Slaughterhouse

[Ed. Note: Also read Hamburger horrors on ABC, NY Times etc. thanks to COK investigation and Crime and Consequence.]

From Compassion Over Killing (COK)
August 2012

The fallout from COK's investigation is not only shining a bright light on the cruelties kept hidden behind the closed doors of the meat and dairy industries, it's changing people's minds - and their diets.

Last week, we told you about COK's new undercover investigative video inside Central Valley Meat, which prompted the USDA to shut down the facility for a full week, citing "egregious inhumane handling and treatment of livestock."

The news doesn’t stop there: in the wake of COK's investigation, several major food companies have severed ties with this facility, including McDonald’s, In-N-Out Burger, and Costco.

In less than one week since its release, COK's investigation made headlines in over 1,500 television, online, and print news stories, including ABC World News with Diane Sawyer, Associated Press, CNN, Los Angeles Times, New York Times, UK's Daily Mail, and more. In addition to extensive media coverage, our 4-minute online video has been viewed half a million times!

The fallout from COK's investigation is not only shining a bright light on the cruelties kept hidden behind the closed doors of the meat and dairy industries, it's changing people's minds - and their diets. Every day, we're saving lives, and this is all made possible thanks to the generosity of members like you.

This is not the first time Compassion Over Killing has investigated and exposed the ugly reality of animal agribusiness - and, with your help, it won't be the last.
