Four Calves Rescued From Hell On Earth

May 13th, 2011

Four tiny calves destined for a brutal, painful and slow death at a Texas Cattle farm, E6 Cattle were rescued, thanks to the efforts of a courageous undercover investigator with Mercy for Animals in concert with The Gentle Barn.

In March 2011, this very brave investigator with Mercy for Animals filmed the cruelty inflicted upon innocent calves at this facility, which raises cattle for the dairy industry. The video of that investigation has left animal advocates reeling with heartbreak. Calves had their skulls bashed with a carpenter's hammer in order to kill the unwanted ones. Others who were sick were left to die a slow and agonizing death with no care whatsoever. No living being should ever have to endure this kind of cruelty. Not ever.

The Gentle Barn is a wonderful place where abused, neglected and unwanted animals are taken to spend the rest of their lives. There they are healed of their physical wounds and then spend the rest of their natural lives knowing only peace and love. The Gentle Barn works in harmony with abused children as well. These children are unable many times to discuss their nightmares one on one, but when they are told the stories of the animals, they immediately bond with them and begin to finally open up. This is a healing place for both humans and animals alike.

These 4 calves were purchased for $10 each by the investigator, since E6 Cattle considered them to be worthless. Thankfully, they will now spend the rest of their lives surrounded by love, living in peaceful harmony with other formerly abused animals. You can watch the arrival of these rescued calves here.

If you would like to become a member of The Gentle Barn, or donate towards the care of these calves or other abused animals, you can do so at their web site. If you would like to donate towards the continued amazing work by Mercy for Animals, you can do so at their web site.

It's heartbreaking to think of the ones left behind, but at least for these 4, they have a chance at life.

If the screams and moans of the animals used to provide for us could be heard, the sound would be deafening. If their misery and suffering could be felt by us, it would be unbearable. --- "Think occasionally of the suffering of which you spare yourself the sight." ~ Albert Schweitzer
