MFA Undercover Video Leads to Cruelty Charges

The owner and 7 employees at Ontario Livestock Sales in Ontario, Calif., a livestock auction house that sells 1,000 to 1,300 animals every week, have been charged with 21 misdemeanor counts for allegedly abusing animals. These charges came after Mercy for Animals released an undercover video shot at this auction house showing workers treating these animals in unimaginable cruel ways:

For those of us who understand the repercussions of causing unnecessary pain and suffering to God’s farm animals it might feel that misdemeanor charges just don’t seem enough consequence for the egregious acts of cruelty depicted in the video; however we should never forget that these workers are also victims of this industry. The mere fact that charges were made and that this case made it to the news is an important sign that there is more awareness than ever about the inherent cruelty of animal agriculture. Hopefully, the time when abusing animals for food will be seen as the exception and not the norm is coming soon.
