Target: David Sokolsky, President of Daisy Farms
Goal: Boycott all Daisy Farm products for their alleged cruel acts of animal abuse.
Rampant abuse and neglect are allegedly taking place on the farms of the popular name brand Daisy Farms despite claims that they have the “best cared for cows on the planet.” If the cows could, they would disagree. After hearing rumors, PETA conducted an undercover investigation of the Daisy brand farm in Paris, Texas.
The very first moments of the calves lives on this farm appear to be traumatic. Allegedly, calves are torn from their mothers’ birth canal by chains and then spiked weaning rings are put on their noses to prevent them from nursing–a natural instinct. Shortly after all this, calves are taken away from their mothers and put in isolation in small, cramped rooms.
Since the calves are in isolation and the milk from their mothers is being used for sale, workers reportedly took small amounts of milk and force fed the calves by shoving tubes down their throats. On two occasions, calves drowned after tubes were carelessly shoved down into their lungs rather than their stomach. Calves are also allegedly dehorned shortly after birth without the use of painkillers.
According to PETA, the treatment of these animals did not get better as they aged. Adult cows were found confined in large sheds among their own waste. Workers were allegedly kicking, whipping and jabbing the cows when they felt necessary. Disease ran rampant in the congested and dirty conditions and adequate care was rarely given.
These animals have suffered enough at the hands of Daisy Farms. Sign this petition and tell Mr. Sokolsky that you will no longer buy Daisy Brand products until this unnecessary animal abuse stops.
Dear Mr. David Sokolsky,
Your brand, Daisy Farms, claims to have the “best cared for cows on the planet.” However, a recent undercover investigate lead by PETA refuted that statement.
Allegedly, investigators discovered many acts of abuse on your farm in Paris, Texas. Calves were being torn out of their mothers’ birth canals using chains, and then shortly after were taken away from their mothers and put in isolation. Since calves cannot nurse from their mothers, they have tubes forced down their throats. On two occasions, calves died when tubes where carelessly shoved into their lungs rather than their stomachs. Workers were seen kicking, whipping and jabbing the cows when they felt necessary. In addition, disease spread like wildfire due to the cramped and dirty conditions and proper veterinary care was not given.
No animal should live like this. The abuse that was allegedly seen on your farm is revolting. I am letting you know that I will no longer buy Daisy products until this abuse stops.
[Your Name Here]
