Once again Chicago-based Mercy For Animals has shown eaters what they don't want to see. In this case the hapless calves torn from their mothers and chained by the neck known as "veal."
The group that exposed DeCoster egg farms years before the mainstream press, released undercover video last week from Buckeye Veal Farm in Apple Creek, Ohio. Narrated by Bob Barker of The Price is Right fame, it shows rows of gentle, newly born calves on spindly legs chained by the neck in 2-feet wide stalls until their date with the slaughterhouse comes. Some are covered with feces.
Buckeye Veal Farm sells its product to Atlantic Veal and Lamb of New York which is a supplier of Issaquah, WA-based Costco, the nation's third largest retailer.
