Worker Sentenced for Abusing Cows

One of the workers shown in the undercover video shot by the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) at a Southern California slaughterhouse has been sentenced to six months in jail. Rafael Sanchez Herrera pleaded guilty to three misdemeanor counts of illegal movement of non-ambulatory animals, including dragging sick cows with metal chains and forklifts, shocking them with electric prods and shooting streams of water in their noses and faces.

Animal cruelty needs to be punished by law as it happened in this case. Farmed animals are at the mercy of humans and have no means to defend themselves or speak up to avoid victimization. As Christians, we are called to show mercy and love to all Creation, and in this way participate in bringing peace and harmony to Earth.
