Re: ALLIGATIONS OF ANIMAL CRUELTY AT FAIR OAKS FARMS
NEWTON COUNTY SHERIFF’S OFFICE (6-5-19 10:00AM)
The Newton County Sheriff’s Office has been made aware of the video and activities depicted in the video that has been released.
We acknowledge the need for humane treatment of animals and the need to hold individuals that have gone beyond an acceptable farm management practice accountable for their actions.
We have requested the names and identifiers of those terminated for animal cruelty by Fair Oaks Dairy Farms. We will also be seeking the identity of the witness to the alleged crimes that failed to report this activity for some time.
We will work with the Newton County Prosecutor’s Office to file charges for any criminal activity the independent investigation revealed.
We anticipate cooperation from both parties in this matter during this investigation.
Any suspected animal cruelty should be reported immediately by calling 219-474-5661 or our TIP LINE 219-234-7014.
