Animal Equality released images documenting the standard practices used in milk production in Mexico, revealing that it inflicts the worst type of abuse on cows and calves raised in the dairy industry. This is the first time an animal advocacy organization has ever gained access to Mexican dairy farms and revealed what happens inside this secretive industry.
What the investigation reveals is an endless cycle of abuse evident in images of:
Dulce Ramírez, Executive Director of Animal Equality Mexico, said, “It’s time to strengthen the law in Mexico to prevent abuses against farmed animals. Animal cruelty must be treated as a crime.”
She added, “Animals used in factory farming are treated like machines - beaten, electrocuted, brutally stabbed, locked inside filthy cages - while the industry completely ignores their suffering.”
These images prove that Mexico seriously lags behind other countries in terms of farmed animal protection laws. Until there is a law that prohibits the use of cruel practices on factory farms, animal abuse will continue to happen.
With this new investigation, Animal Equality adds momentum to our petition that was delivered to the Federal Government and to the Senate of Mexico in December to modify the federal legislation and make the abuse of farmed animals a crime.
Please help us put an end to this cruelty by replacing dairy products in your diet.
