Alec Baldwin Says Dairy Farm Abuse Video Shows Necessity Of Animal Rights Movement
30 Rock star Alec Baldwin took to his blog at Huffington Post to address rumors that the Working Families Party has contacted him about running for Governor of New York—which the actor denies. He did, however, affirm his passion for politics and shared his thoughts regarding what he believes is necessary in a New York Governor.
In the closing section of his blog post, Baldwin addressed the horrendous undercover video which was obtained by Mercy For Animals at Conklin Dairy Farms in Plain City, Ohio.
The 52 year old writes, “On another, certainly more important note, did you see the video posted here regarding the Conklin Farm animal abuse story in Ohio? Let me assure you, someone risked their health and maybe their life to record that video. When you see this, you will never again doubt the necessity for and courage of the animal rights movement.”
The Mercy for Animals undercover footage was released last week and revealed farm workers kicking cows who were too injured to stand, body slamming calves to the ground, stabbing cows in the face with pitchforks, punching cows’ udders, and bragging about beating animals to death.
