Animal-rights groups want owners and dairy workers at Willet Dairy in New York to face animal abuse charges.

According to ABC News, Nathan Runkle, executive director of Mercy for Animals, claims the tape made by his organization's undercover operative shows practices that violate New York state's anti-cruelty statute. “We believe all parties responsible for the abuse should be held accountable,” he told the news organization.

The Cayuga County District Attorney's office confirms that an investigation is under way, but adds that no charges will be filed until the investigation is complete. The D.A.’s office also says it will work with the dairy to make changes to animal-care policies, depending on the outcome of the investigation.
