More Workers convicted of Animal Cruelty at DiGiorno Cheese Supplier

By Vandhana Bala

WBF Rough Handling 06.jpgTwo more workers have been convicted of animal cruelty following an undercover investigation by Mercy For Animals at Wiese Brothers Farms in Wisconsin. Crescencio Pineda and Misael Monge-Minero were caught on hidden-camera viciously kicking and whipping cows, beating them the face and body, and using machinery to cruelly hoist sick or injured cows into the air. They have been ordered to pay a total of $1,322 in fines.

The undercover video footage led to the conviction of two other workers at the facility a few weeks ago. In total, four workers have been charged and convicted of cruelty to animals at this dairy factory farm. At the time of the investigation, Wiese Brothers was a dairy supplier to DiGiorno brand frozen pizza.

Watch the shocking undercover video that led to the convictions here:

What's especially ugly, not to mention bizarre, is hearing the abusers call the cows "cunts" and "whores" while they beat them.

2. What the hell is wrong with people

I shake my head and cry that the corporations and states are stopping undercover video of these cretins:

Idaho dairies seek to stop activists from filming
BOISE, Idaho (AP) - Idaho’s $2.5 billion dairy industry went on the offensive Thursday against agricultural espionage, where camera-wielding animal-rights activists spy on farms in hopes of catching cruelty to cows on tape.

The legislation, backed by some of the nation’s largest milk producers, would put people who surreptitiously film their operations in jail for up to a year and slap them with a $5,000 fine. The measure follows Utah and Missouri, states that have already enacted so-called “ag gag laws.”
