It seems that every few months another undercover video is released by an animal rights organization showing abuse of animals on a farm or in a processing facility. Typically, when these abuses come to light, the AVMA condemns the behavior and encourages full prosecution of those responsible for the abuse. This is what we did following the release of the latest such video, which showed the horrifying abuse of calves at a cattle farm in Texas.
