Tell Saputo to Stop Supporting Horrific Animal Cruelty


(version française)

A breaking Mercy For Animals Canada investigation reveals sadistic animal abuse at Chilliwack Cattle Company — a major Saputo dairy supplier.

MFA Canada’s hidden-camera footage reveals:

•  Workers viciously kicking, punching, beating, and hitting cows in the face and body with chains, canes, metal pipes, and rakes

•  Sick and injured cows suffering from open wounds, oozing infections, and painful injuries left to suffer without proper veterinary care

•  Workers using chains and tractors to lift sick and injured cows by their necks

•  Workers poking and squeezing festering wounds, ripping clumps of hair out of cows' sensitive tails, and punching bulls in the testicles

Unfortunately, these abuses are merely a sample of the ongoing cruelty and violence documented at this Saputo dairy supplier.

Saputo is responsible for establishing meaningful animal welfare policies and oversight to ensure that cruelty and neglect don’t flourish on its watch.

No socially responsible corporation should support dairy operations that beat, kick, and neglect animals.

Saputo must take immediate action to prevent further abuse by its suppliers.

Saputo has the power and the ethical responsibility to help end some of the worst forms of animal cruelty in the dairy industry.

Please join Mercy For Animals Canada in calling on Saputo to immediately implement meaningful animal protection guidelines for all dairy suppliers, including zero tolerance for animal abuse, care for “downers,” and video monitoring systems.

Thank you.
