Cows Allegedly Tortured and Abused at Dairy Farm Deserve Justice

Target: Bruce Colton, State Attorney for Okeechobee County, Florida

Goal: Demand that the men who allegedly beat and tortured cows at a dairy farm receive the maximum penalty by law.

Cows were allegedly beaten, stabbed, and burned at a dairy farm. Shocking video footage reportedly showed three men beating and stabbing cows with sharpened PVC pipe. Demand justice for these poor cows.

“Animals are being beaten with makeshift spears, with razor-sharp pieces of PVC, are being stabbed in the face and the private areas,” stated Animal Recovery Mission founder Richard Couto. Animal Recovery Mission workers obtained video footage of the alleged animal cruelty while working undercover at McArthur Dairy Farms. Per authorities, the video showed three men stabbing and hitting cows in the face and udder with sharpened PVC pipe. At one point, the video reportedly showed a man holding a flame to a cow’s udder, and authorities claim that cows were also burned alive and electrocuted.

The Okeechobee County Sheriff has charged Mario Hernandez, Fernando Lopez-Cruz, and Gilberto Dorante-Garcia with animal cruelty. A warrant has been issued for a fourth man, whose name has not been made public. Sign below and demand that Hernandez, Lopez-Cruz, and Dorante-Garcia receive the maximum penalty by law, if convicted.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear State Attorney Colton,

Cows were allegedly tortured, burned, and beaten at an Okeechobee County dairy farm. Gruesome video footage reportedly showed three men hitting and stabbing the cows with sharpened PVC pipe and burning the cows with a torch. We demand justice for these innocent cows.

The Okeechobee County Sheriff charged Mario Hernandez, Fernando Lopez-Cruz, and Gilberto Dorante-Garcia with animal cruelty after they allegedly tortured and abused cows at McArthur Dairy Farms. Shocking video footage, taken by undercover Animal Recovery Mission workers, reportedly showed the men stabbing the cows in the face and body and holding a flame to a cow’s udder. Per authorities, cows were also burned alive and electrocuted. The investigation is ongoing, and a warrant has been issued for a fourth unidentified man.

This horrific abuse must be punished. We demand that you seek the maximum penalty in this case.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. In the name of God, please keep these awful abusers and killers behind bars and away from animals. They are capable of these crimes to humans too.

  2. Just1ofthemadones says:

    There are too many dirty rotten pieces of shit floating around disguised as human beings such as those two….things described in this petition. The only honestly real way to get rid of that is to put a bullet between each of their eyes then burn that trash.

  3. They aren’t all locked up yet!!! PLEASE prosecute these people! We have to have stiffer sentences for these animal abusers. Thank goodness it was caught on video!

  4. These monsters need to be removed from the planet.
