This Week's Video
A few weeks ago, we shared with out readers the shocking undercover
Mercy For Animals'
video depicting the most egregious cruelty
acts on calves at E6 Cattle Co. (a dairy farm) in Hart, Texas. Mercy for
Animals released a second video, this time one of hope and healing,
involving the rescue of 4 calves from E6 and their transport to their
new home at “The Gentle Barn”, in Santa Clarita, California, where
abused and troubled kids interact with rescued farm animals.

Paul Hansen, one of our sustaining members, shared some comments with
us that I think are very appropriate in this case: "Ironically, The
Gentle Barn, located in Santa Clarita, California, is the sort of place
where mission-minded Christian churches might want to send abused kids
to interact with rescued farm animals, whose story of abuse echoes that
of the kids and helps therapeutically to “heal” the kids. Yet, those
same churches don't give a second thought to their support of industries
(like dairy) that routinely abuse such animals, separate calves from
their mothers prematurely and sell them for veal. This is not just an
irony, but a moral-cultural disconnect." .
