Syracuse, N.Y. — Dressed as a cow, a PETA supporter will dump gallons of “milk” outside a grocery store in Syracuse as part of a protest against cruel factory dairy farms. Another protester will wear a body-screen TV showing newly released video footage taken by a whistleblower at a farm that supplies Land O’Lakes. The video–which shows sick, exhausted cows struggling to stand and being forced to hobble through a massive build-up of their own waste–will reveal to consumers how much filth and suffering goes into the production of milk and other dairy products. The cows suffered from painful infections and severe lameness, and animals were kept in miserable conditions and deprived of even basic care. Some of the animals went untreated and were not put out of their misery when they were in pain and unable to stand.

When:   Thursday, October 22, 1 p.m.

Where:  C.L. Evers & Company, 214 W. Water St., Syracuse

“This investigation shows that when you don’t wean yourself off milk, butter, and cheese, you may be paying someone to cause great suffering to animals on factory farms,” says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. “Anyone with a conscience will find this footage disturbing, but people can help stop these abuses by dropping dairy products from their diets.”

PETA launched the investigation after a whistleblower working at the farm became concerned about conditions there and contacted PETA for help earlier this year. Investigators discovered cows who were sick and unable to move, were denied medical care despite being in pain, and were abused by the farm’s owners. The owners–a man and his son–have now been charged with cruelty to animals.

This powerful film takes viewers on an unforgettable journey behind the closed doors of some of the country’s largest egg production facilities and graphically illustrates the heartbreaking plight of laying hens condemned to lives crowded inside file-drawer-sized cages.

Through touching interviews with animal rescuers, undercover investigators, veterinarians, and animal behaviorists, we hear compelling stories motivated by kindness and courage from the dedicated individuals who are fighting to save the modern day hen – perhaps the most abused and exploited animal on earth.
