Undercover Cruelty

New undercover footage from Mercy for Animals captures rampant animal cruelty at a Texas factory farm.

Mercy For Animals (MFA) has released a new video showing hidden-camera footage at a factory farm in Hart, Texas, revealing inhumane and malicious practices. The film shows workers at E6 Cattle Co.—which houses almost 10,000 calves—kicking injured calves in the head, hitting calves in the head with pickaxes and hammers, and throwing beaten calves into piles. According to MFA, Kirt Espenson, the owner of E6 Cattle Co., approves of the use of hammers on calves’ heads. MFA has filed a legal complaint against the factory farm, which is currently under investigation.
