Five factory-farm workers from E6 Cattle Co. in Hart, Texas, have been charged with felonies following the release of an undercover video made by Mercy for Animals (MFA) investigators.

Horton. “We commend the Castro County district attorney and sheriff’s office for taking swift and decisive action in bringing animal abusers to justice,” said MFA Executive Director Nathan Runkle.
