Billy Joe Gregg Jr., a farmhand and amateur sadist from Plain City, Ohio, was sentenced to eight months in jail and ordered to pay a $1,000 fine for beating, kicking and stabbing calves and cows at a dairy farm where he worked. The conviction came after the group Mercy for Animals released an incredibly disturbing, graphic undercover video (which you might want to think twice about watching), which showed Gregg and other workers beating the helpless animals in the face with crowbars, stabbing them with pitchforks, breaking their tails, as well as punching, throwing, and kicking calves. Honestly, we can’t believe we just typed that. Conklin Dairy Farm fired Gregg the day the video was released, but he was the only worker to face criminal charges. He’s barred from contact with animals for three years and must receive psychological counseling. Where are the zealots espousing eye-for-eye justice when you need them?
