The undercover video case surrounding Quanah Cattle Co., a company that buys bull calves from dairy farms, took an unusual turn as authorities arrested an undercover activist for allegedly not reporting the abuse in a timely manner.
The activist is Taylor Radig, who calls herself a “contractor” for the animal-rights group Compassion Over Killing. According to KMGH-TV (7 News) in Denver, Radig filmed the abuse from mid-July through September.
Radig reportedly handed the footage over to the Weld County, Colo., Sheriff’s Office two months after she stopped working there.
On Friday, Radig was charged with animal cruelty for allegedly not reporting the abuse when it was occurring, which is a violation of state law. Click here to read more.
The undercover video initially surfaced in mid-November. Read, “Video shows abuse of bull calves.”
An upcoming webinar sponsored by the Center for Food Integrity will outline how to survive an undercover video, including a step-by-step plan to restoring public trust in the wake of the video.
