UK Today News: Conklin Dairy Farms Brutality Video Taken By Mercy For Animals Shows Cows Tortured

Conklin Dairy Farms, Conklin Dairy Farms Brutality Video, Mercy For Animals: Ohio’s Conklin Dairy Farms is in the news, after very disturbing video footage of the cruelty meted out to the farm animals, was released online. The Conklin Dairy Farms video shows farm employees mercilessly beating and torturing cows and calves with crowbars and fists, with apparently no concern at all for the lives of the animals.

Conklin Farm Cow

Conklin Dairy Farms’ owner, Gary Conklin, is said to have released a statement condemning the violent act and has called for the immediate termination of the employees who were involved in torturing and injuring the cows.

Reports say that the video was caught on a hidden camera thanks to an investigation carried out by “Mercy For Animals”, somewhere around the end of April to May 2010. The abuse was so disturbing that it shows workers repeatedly hitting cows on the head with a crowbar and even punching the faces of calves with fists.

Gary Conklin told reporters: “We intend to cooperate fully with authorities in this situation. Further, our farm will institute immediate retraining of all those who remain on the farm and who work with our animals.”

The Conklin Dairy Farms has led to outrage among animal lovers and animal rights activists who call for the punishment of all the people involved in this brutality towards the animals.

    This must be one of the worst things i have ever seen. After the tears stopped, the anger started!
    I will make sure this travels much further.
    The owner needs to be questioned. His standard reply is not good enough.
    The workers who commited these stupid, useless acts, need castrated immediately. They should not be allowed to spread their genes.

    The farm owner, Gary Conklin, is in the Mercy For Animals footage too, identified at 1:27, where he’s kicking a lying cow in the head repeatedly.

    These farm owners know exactly what’s happening on their farms, but they don’t care since they see them as “live stock” instead of animals. I’m a vegan since I can’t support this treatment to any animal used in food, clothing, cosmetic, entertainment industries, etc.

    The owner Gary Conklin is showed in the video kicking a cow as well, and now he pretends to be the good boy and act like he didn’t know anything was going on? what a stupid sick ass, his whole farm should be shut down and his priviledges revoked!

    This type of culture flows from the top of the company. I think the owner Gary is going down.
    “Kicking “downed” cows (those too injured to stand) in the face and neck – abuse carried out and encouraged by the farm’s owner”

    There is never just one cocroach.

    Jeff, Let’s say you got a job at Conclin Farms and read your job description. Do you think anywhere in there it would read, “Daily Tasks: #1. Kick animals. #2. Punch animals. #3. Stab animals. #4. Throw animals. #5. Torture animals.”? I’ve never read a more ignorant comment.

    Hey Jeff. Go f*** yourself motherf*****g asshole. Maybe you’ll get your head bashed in? The world would be a better place.

    What cracks me up most is that all you talk about how you are sickened by this violence read one post that does not agree with your thinking and your first response is to say how you will beat and bash in heads and kill him and anyone who thinks like him…..Maybe you people should examine your own hate anger and violence issues. and before you go ape with the replies. I agree that what this video shows is abhorrent however not really surprising. If the article lead read “OHIO REDNECK FARMERS SHOW VIOLENT TENDENCIES!” we would all just shrug and say ehh.. no surprise there.

    The laws in ohio provide that for each count of animal abuse, you can get a maximum sentence of 90 days and about $750. The main guy in the video, Billy Joe Greggs Jr. has 12 counts against him. Thats a maximum of about 3 years. Not enough. I hope people don’t condemn Ohio in general, because I like my state it’s not completely bad. Just like any other place it has it’s good and bad parts. Despite popular belief, it’s not all rednecks and hill country. :)

    It sickens me to think heartless people live in our society, its the twenty first century. I understand some animals are ment for food but surely there’s a more humaine way to go about it. And as for these cruelty cases I say an eye for an eye. These poor animals go through alot for our sorry asses .
