Description of Abuse from Investigating Organization:
Newly released hidden camera video secretly shot by an investigator with Mercy For Animals at one of the nation’s top veal producers for companies like Costco and Giant Eagle grocery stores exposes baby calves chained by their necks in narrow stalls, where they cannot even turn around or walk.
The covert footage was recorded at Buckeye Veal Farm in Apple Creek, Ohio, and reveals baby calves chained inside 2-feet wide wooden stalls – so narrow they cannot turn around, walk, run, play, socialize with other animals, or engage in other basic natural behaviors. In such tight confinement, the animals are unable to lie down comfortably, breathe fresh air, see sunlight, clean themselves or bond with their mothers.
