HART, TEXAS - Animal cruelty charges may be filed against an area farmer. The Castro County Sheriff is investigating after the non-profit group "mercy for animals" held a news conference today showing an undercover video of the E-6 Cattle Company.
The video includes clips of workers hitting cows over the head with pick axes and several other acts the group deems unethical.
"All animals deserve to be protected from needless cruelty," Mercy for Animals's Daniel Hauff said. "It's blatant animal abuse to savagely bash in the heads of fully conscious cows with hammers and pix axes."
