Look at the despair in their eyes. All they wanted was freedom and love; all they got was suffering and death.

Though animals are stinky and gross, and their breath often smells bad, I love them so much! I just want to share with people how beautiful animals are and how deserving they are of a chance to experience life. Eating animals and supporting the dairy and egg industry just doesn’t make sense to me…
I live in Colorado, and I recently heard about Taylor Radig who was working as an undercover investigator to document cruelty at Quanah Cattle…
Friends: Last month I partnered up with animal advocacy organization,Compassion Over Killing, to exposed a Colorado calf ranch for egregious abuse of newborn calves. While employed, I witnessed and documented the calves being violently dragged by their limbs, pulled by their ears, lifted by their tails, kicked, thrown, slammed, and flipped. What I didn’t expect was for the Weld County Sheriff’s Office to charge ME with animal abuse, for merely witnessing these crimes. I now am having to face the possibility of jail time for this unlawful charge. Their reason? I didn’t report it in a timely manner. Not only this, but they publicly revealed my identity (sending my mug shot to over a hundred news stations), ending my career. This entire situation is politically motivated, meant to silence people who care about the treatment of animals. I never wanted this to happen(including the release of my identity), because this isn’t about me. It’s about the suffering of animals that’s kept secret- locked behind the closed doors of animal enterprises. This charge is unprecedented, and something that we need to actively fight in order to protect our other investigators. Most importantly, these animals need to continue to have their stories told. I would be extremely grateful if you signed this petition, asking the DA to drop my charges. If you know any Colorado folks, feel free to send it to them! Again, this isn’t about me, it’s about the animals.
