The Humane Society of the US is reporting nine employees at Wyoming Premium Farms, including the assistant manager, are facing counts of animal cruelty.

It has happened again and we don’t know just how widespread this level of cruelty on factory farms across the board really is. I suspect we are seeing the tip of a terrible iceberg. Reportedly, the Wyoming Livestock Board and the Platte County Attorney’s Office have filed the charges.

I found the news on HuffingtoPost.com along with a link to the undercover video. Warning: the images are graphic.

Most likely, if the accused are found guilty, they will be handed very light sentences. Until our criminal justice system understands the term “justice,” the progress will be slow in terms of defeating animal cruelty once and for all.
