Alec Baldwin addresses Conklin Dairy Farms undercover video

In an article written for Huffington Post, Alec Baldwin discusses his views on what New York needs in a Governor. At the end of his commentary, the actor touched on the subject of the abuse caught on video at Conklin Dairy Farms.

Baldwin writes:
“On another, certainly more important note, did you see the video posted here regarding the Conklin Farm animal abuse story in Ohio? Let me assure you, someone risked their health and maybe their life to record that video. When you see this, you will never again doubt the necessity for and courage of the animal rights movement.”

The graphic undercover video obtained by Mercy For Animals at Conklin Dairy Farms shows workers beating cows in the face with crowbars, stabbing cows repeatedly with pitchforks, punching young calves in the face, and twisting cow tails until the bone snaps.
