I watched the video of this monster beating cows. For him to get just a four-month jail sentence is sickening.

Wake up Ohio and get stronger animal cruelty laws.

-- Robin Palmer

Here is the Associated Press article:

MARYSVILLE — An Ohio dairy farm worker accused of beating cows while unwittingly being filmed has pleaded guilty to six counts of animal cruelty.
A court clerk said 25-five-year-old Billy Joe Gregg Jr. was sentenced Friday in Marysville on the misdemeanors to eight months in jail. That was cut to four months because of time already served.
Gregg must also have no contact with animals for three years.
He was fired in May by Conklin Dairy Farms Inc. after the group Mercy for Animals released video it said showed Gregg and others abusing cows with crowbars and pitchforks.
The group released a statement Friday calling Gregg’s sentence “a slap on the wrist” and “an outrage.”
