First ever in BC – Cruelty against dairy farm animals
Sadly in the Fraser Valley of British Columbia, farm country to those familiar with the region, there has been breaking news through a submission of an undercover video to the SPCA from June 2014 showing helpless dairy cows being kicked, punched and beaten with chains and farming tools. Out of the twenty counts of animal cruelty 16 of the claims were against dairy cows and the 4 counts against pigeons. This is the first time the SPCA has been informed of animal cruelty on a farm in BC.
Thankfully under the Protection of Cruelty to Animals Act the employees are being charged. To learn more about this story watch the video:
