Animal Abuse Revealed at Burger King Facility

A new undercover video released by Mercy For Animals reveals horrific abuse of cows at one of the fast food chain’s dairy suppliers.

Animal-welfare group Mercy For Animals released a video yesterday that revealed workers at Burger King diary supplier Bettencourt Dairies’ Dry Creek Dairy in Hansen, ID violently abusing animals. The graphic undercover film, which was shot in August, shows workers shocking cows, dragging a downed cow with a tractor by the neck, stomping and beating cows inside a milking barn and twisting cow’s tails to deliberately inflict pain. Three individuals have been charged with misdemeanor animal cruelty as a result of the video, and if convicted, each face up to $5,000 in fines and possible jail time.
