Being called the worst abuse at a factory farm yet discovered, Mercy For Animals (MFA) shot an undercover video of cruelty at the E6 Cattle Ranch in Hart, Texas during a two week period in March, 2011.
MFA documented the following abuses:
Workers bludgeoning calves in their skulls with pickaxes and hammers -- often involving 5 to 6 blows, sometimes more -- before rendering the animals unconscious
Beaten calves, still alive and conscious, thrown onto dead piles
Workers kicking downed calves in the head, and standing on their necks and ribs
Calves confined to squalid hutches, thick with manure and urine buildup, and barely large enough for the calves to turn around or fully extend their legs
Gruesome injuries and afflictions, including open sores, swollen joints and severed hooves
Ill, injured and dying calves denied medical care
The budding horns of calves burned out their skulls without painkillers
