PETA: Video Shows Abuse At NC Dairy Farm
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — The group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals is asking the state to investigate allegations of animal cruelty at a North Carolina farm that supplies milk to a major grocery-store chain.
The animal-welfare group says it’s obtained a video showing sick, emaciated cows being forced to stand in knee-deep manure for hours, even when the animals are milked and fed.
The organization is asking several state agencies and law enforcement to conduct an emergency inspection of the Osborne farm in western North Carolina. A phone number there had been disconnected.
PETA senior vice president Daphna Nachminovitch says the farm supplies milk to Harris Teeter. She says PETA is urging Harris Teeter to reassess its relationship with the farm.
A telephone message for Harris Teeter was not immediately returned Tuesday.
