I am a dairyfarmer myself, and i get sick after seeing this video. I dont know how you get these video`s, but i hope you went to the police with it, so they can do something about it.
I hope that you realise that these things are NOT normal on a dairy and absolutely should be banned out.
I would suggest you get in contact to some dairy organisations in the region where these video`s were taken, so they also can do something. I am sure they will take this matter seriously.

I agree that so much cruelty, etc. goes unpunished, but you have to start somewhere, and this is clearly a case of animal torture. I am certainly aware that there are many people who rationalize eating meat, etc., and for them there are many gray areas that we would see as clearly wrong. But this crosses every line I can think of! If nothing else (and this may persuade those who don't think of animals as having rights), the sort of people who treat animals this way usually treat other human beings the same way, either now or eventually. That is, human beings that they think are "below" them such as women and children, minorities, elderly, poor, disabled, etc. Isn't it true that most serial killers start out torturing and killing animals? This video should set off all kinds of alarms!
The guy in the video has been charged with 12 counts of animal cruelty and a felony weapons charge. His name in Billy Joe Gregg. Here's a link with the most recent information I could find. http://www2.nbc4i.com/news/2010/jun/10/4/alleged-animal-abuser-pleads-not-guilty-firearms-c-ar-104418/ I hope he's found guilty on all counts and his sentences run consecutively, not concurrently. He deserves it. From what I read, he's just the scapegoat. The owner and 4-5 other workers have been filmed abusing animals, too. They all belong in prison.
I am so happy to hear it! Thank you peacefulvegan for sharing that information! Bye, Ivana
