Chilliwack Cattle Sales To Plead Guilty In Animal Cruelty Case

Chilliwack Dairy Farm Charged With 20 Counts Of Animal Cruelty

Justice will finally be served regarding an animal cruelty case against Chilliwack Cattle Sales.

Mercy For Animals conducted an undercover investigation at Canada’s largest dairy factory farm and the findings were gruesome.

A hidden camera revealed that cows at the dairy farm were being abused—with worker’s viciously kicking, punching and beating the animals with chains, canes, and rakes.

One of the owners of Chilliwack Cattle Sales and three of its employees mentioned in court they will plead guilty to the animal cruelty charges at the next hearing on December 15th.

“Justice is finally being served for these abused and exploited animals,” said Mercy For Animals’ president, Nathan Runkle. “This case graphically reveals the horrific cruelty and extreme neglect that dairy cows suffer on Canadian factory farms. The dairy industry has proven that it is incapable of self-regulation. Until the Dairy Code of Practice is given the force of law in every province, cruelty and neglect will continue to run rampant in Canada’s dairy farms.”

While sentencing has yet to be announced—Mercy For Animals is urging the courts to sentence the abusers to the fullest extent of the law.
