State Of Indiana Under Investigation For Alleged Animal Abuse

The state of Indiana is now involved in an investigation into an alleged abuse of animals at a dairy farm in Northwest Indiana.

The Indiana State Board of Animal Health says it’s looking into claims of animal abuse at Fair Oaks Farms in Newton County after an animal rights’ activist group released disturbing footage last week showing calves being hit, dragged and kicked.
