Charges Against Undercover Investigator Taylor Radig Dropped

In December we wrote about the unjust charges of animal abuse against Taylor Radig, an undercover investigator for non-profit animal rights organization, Compassion Over Killing. Radig blew the whistle on animal cruelty she witnessed while working undercover with a cattle company, and while some employees were rightly charged with animal abuse, Radig was slapped with it, too.

Thankfully, after calls and emails to the Weld County District Attorney’s office, nearly 200,000 signatures on a Change.org petition, and increased financial support to COK, the charges against Radig have been dropped.

Part of a brief statement from prosecutors read, “While the Sheriff’s Office determined that probable cause existed to believe that Ms. Radig committed that offense, the District Attorney’s Office evaluates a case based on whether the charges can be proven beyond a reasonable doubt. The District Attorney’s Office has concluded that the charges can’t be proven beyond a reasonable doubt and therefore those charges have been dismissed against Ms. Radig.”

Three employees at Quanah Cattle Company were charged with animal abuse following Radig’s courageous undercover investigation. They are due for an arraignment hearing on January 21st.
