New information is available in the ongoing investigation into the alleged animal abuse at Fair Oaks Farms. Witnesses this week confirmed Animal Recovery Mission (ARM) employees coerced their coworkers to perform the acts to be recorded. 

"A third-party witness has come forward to corroborate the allegations made by a suspect that the ARM employee encouraged or coerced the behavior depicted in the portions of the video that have been released publicly,” Newton County Prosecuting Attorney Jeff Drinski says. “Detectives continue to investigate these claims through additional interviews and written discovery."

Three former Fair Oaks Farms employees face animal abuse charges, authorities have only been able to find one of the employees. 

Edgar Gardozo-Vasquez, 36 years old of Brook, IN was taken into custody June 12 on a warrant for animal cruelty and torturing or mutilating a vertebrate animal. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has a hold on Gardozo-Vasquez. It’s believed he was in the country illegally and had been apprehended by ICE officers previously.

ARM used the same tactic at a respected dairy in Okeechobee Florida. Film hours of planted abuse over a months time. Make a marketable product ready for the press and sell it to your highest bidder. Usually the local news which has a troubleshooter segment will purchase the ready made product. If you do look at the edited out versions you will notice the herd health looks better than the described treatment would otherwise allow. Criminal. Agribusiness has its own problems trying to survive .
