Fair Oaks Farms, a famous dairy farm in Indiana that produces fairlife dairy products, is coming under fire after undercover video allegedly shows workers kicking and throwing calves, The Associated Press and multiple media outlets are reporting.
Here are five things you need to know about the dairy and the controversial video.
1. Police are investigating alleged animal abuse. The investigation came after the animal rights group, Animal Recovery Mission, secretly recorded video of what the group called “daily mistreatment of the resident farm animals,” the AP reported.
The sheriff’s department has asked for the names of the employees shown in the video, as well as, the person who recorded it for Animal Recovery Mission, according to the Indy Star.
“Due to the many years Fair Oaks Farms has been in business, it is impossible to number the amount of calves and cows that have inhumanely died at the hands of this company,” Rachel Taylor, a spokeswoman for Animal Recovery Mission, told The Chicago Sun Times.
