Undercover Investigator Faces Cruelty Charges

A Compassion Over Killing worker may be sentenced to 18 months in prison after bringing animal abuse to light.

Taylor Radig, an animal-welfare activist working as an undercover investigator, is being charged with animal cruelty. Radig secretly filmed workers abusing baby calves, kicking them off trailers, and dragging them by their ears. After the footage was revealed to authorities, three Quanah workers were terminated and charged with animal cruelty, but now the Weld County Sheriff’s office is charging Radig with the same offense because she observed the illegal animal handling. Arresting whistleblowers for exposing corrupt industry practices is unprecedented, because authorities don’t want to discourage people from calling attention to illegal activity.
