Saints or animal abusers? by Tracy Hutchins.
If you think Animal Abuse among the Amish is an exception, you haven’t spent a day in an Amish livestock auction. Even the children who are hired helpers at the auction carry sticks and cattle prods (in the equine pens). I’ve seen 3 day old calves hit with a prod for not walking fast enough. I’ve sen terrified, injured horses hit across the legs for being afraid. I live in Amish country and I’ve never met an Amish who gives a damn about an animal once it can’t work or make money for them. They are heartless people that wear their peaceful mask and take out their frustrations on their animals.
