Update 08/28/2019: The state police investigated and found that the Reitz Dairy Farm owners have not violated animal cruelty laws. We find it difficult to believe, given the damning video and whistleblower complaints, that there is no evidence of cruelty. PETA has stated that the investigation remains "open and active" and we will continue petitioning for further investigation into these troubling allegations.
These dairy cows must be treated humanely - ignoring obvious health issues, including open and oozing wounds, is unacceptable. Dairy cows forced to live in urine, feces and squalor is also not acceptable!
Do these images (screenshots via PETA's undercover investigation) look as if conditions are "okay?" If you agree that these cows deserve better, please sign the petition and we will present it to officials - letting them know that the public is watching, and that people DO care.
Please join us in asking the Pennsylvania State Police to investigate and charge anyone who is involved in these abhorrent practices at the Reitz Dairy Farm. These cows already give their life to produce milk for humans. They should not be hit or kicked. They should not be living in their own feces. They should not be suffering with untreated injuries and infections.
Please sign and let the authorities know that this is not okay. A full investigation by the authorities must happen and charges must be made against anyone found to be involved in these neglectful conditions.
