Is your pizza topped with horrific animal cruelty? 
A shocking new Mercy For Animals undercover investigation reveals heartbreaking animal abuse at a milk producer for Leprino Foods – the world’s largest mozzarella cheese maker and major cheese supplier to Pizza Hut, Domino’s and Papa John’s. 
Using a hidden camera, MFA’s brave undercover investigator documented the following horrific abuses: 
  • Workers viciously kicking and punching cows, and stabbing them with screwdrivers, causing bloody wounds and injuries
  • Cows being violently whipped in their faces and bodies with chains and metal wires
  • Workers maliciously shocking sick and injured cows and dragging them with tractors
  • Sick or injured cows suffering from open wounds, infections, and injuries left to suffer without proper veterinary care
MFA's latest investigation is already making national news, after the Associated Press broke the story this morning. Click here to read the story. 
Law enforcement is currently investigating and we expect criminal animal cruelty charges to be filed against workers and managers at the facility. 
MFA is also calling on Leprino Foods to immediately implement meaningful animal welfare policies to prevent the type of egregious animal abuse that was exposed during this investigation throughout its dairy supply chain. 
Treated as mere milk-producing machines, cows exploited and abused for cheese used on pizzas endure lives of near constant misery and deprivation. These highly intelligent and social animals suffer almost unimaginable abuse from the time they are born and ripped from their mothers' sides until they are so physically worn out from repeated pregnancies and constant milk production that they are sold for slaughter. 
This has to stop! 
Please, take a moment to sign this petition calling on Leprino Foods to immediately implement meaningful animal welfare policies to prevent egregious animal abuse at its supplier farms. Then please share the hidden-camera video with friends and encourage them to take action too. 
Sadly, unconscionable cruelty and violence are standard practice for dairy companies nationwide. Thankfully, caring consumers can help end the needless suffering of cows and other farmed animals by choosing vegan alternatives to milk and cheese. 
Sincerely, 
Nathan Runkle President 
P.S. Please consider making a special tax-deductible donation to support the work of our brave undercover investigators who risk everything to expose the tragic truth about animal suffering on factory farms. 
  
      
 

A breaking Mercy For Animals Canada undercover investigation reveals sadistic, criminal cruelty to cows at the country’s largest dairy factory farm, leading law enforcement to raid the factory farm and recommend charges against eight workers.

MFA’s investigator documented employees inflicting horrific abuses on cows, including:

  • Using chains, rakes, metal pipes, and canes to viciously whip, punch, kick, hit, and beat cows
  • Hoisting cows into the air by chains around their necks while other workers screamed obscenities at them
  • Sadistically poking at cows’ festering, pus-filled wounds
  • Violently ripping clumps of hair out of cows’ sensitive tails 

Unfortunately, the abuses captured on hidden camera at this facility are not limited to factory farms in Canada.

In the last five years, Mercy For Animals has conducted five undercover investigations into the dairy industry, and every one of these investigations has led to criminal charges and convictions against workers who were caught on video maliciously abusing animals.

Most recently, our investigation at Wiese Brothers Farms in Wisconsin led to multiple criminal convictions of workers who were caught on hidden camera viciously kicking and whipping cows, beating them in the face and body, and using machinery to cruelly hoist sick or injured cows into the air.

Treated as mere milk-producing machines, cows on dairy factory farms endure lives of near constant misery and deprivation. In order to keep a steady supply of milk, the cows are repeatedly impregnated. Several times a day, dairy cows are hooked by their udders to electric milking machines that can cause the cows to suffer painful lesions and mastitis.

If they don’t move fast enough, the cows are often mercilessly beaten. These highly intelligent and social animals suffer almost unimaginable abuse from the time they are born and ripped from their mothers' sides until they are so physically worn out from repeated pregnancies and constant milk production that they are sold for slaughter.

Please join Mercy For Animals in calling for an end to the worst forms of cruelty in the dairy industry.

Then share the hidden-camera video with friends and encourage them to take action too.

Finally, please consider further helping cows, and all farmed animals, by exploring a diet free of eggs, dairy, and meat.

Thank you.

Nathan Runkle Executive Director
