District attorney says he needed undercover video to make calf abuse case

The district attorney who filed animal cruelty charges against employees and the owner of a large-scale calf-raising farm this week says he probably 'wouldn't have a case' if not for covert video provided by an animal protection group.

Castro County DA James R. Horton said that without the footage from Mercy for Animals (MFA) 'we wouldn't have anything' in terms of evidence against the suspects in the beating deaths of dairy calves at E6 Cattle Co. in Hart, Texas.

During a two-week period in March, an MFA undercover investigator obtained footage and photographs of workers at E6 bludgeoning and stomping calves to death.
