Male Calves Beaten, Kicked & Punched - Animal Transportation Exposed
A new investigation exposes how workers beat and abuse baby male calves during their transportation from Ireland to different parts of Europe.
As can be seen, the workers have no patience for the babies who were taken from their mothers and are overwhelmed from the journey.
Why are male calves transported to other countries
Cows, like all female mammals, can only produce milk after giving birth. To prevent the newborn babies from nursing, dairy farms separate the babies from their mothers soon after birth.
While female babies can replace their mother and be exploited for their future milk - male babies are considered "waste products". Some farms prefer to brutally kill these babies on the farm itself, while other farms, like the ones these babies came from, prefer to sell the babies who are then slaughtered for "veal".

Even though it sounds insane, the killing of calves is essential for the production of dairy and meat. The images are hard to watch, but it is vital that people see them.
