Media Roundup from MFA's Veal Farm Investigation

BobBarkerNewsConference.jpgLast week, Mercy For Animals made national headlines by releasing hidden camera footage of calves on an Ohio veal factory farm chained by their necks in narrow stalls where they couldn't even turn around.

Bob Barker, Emmy Award-winning host of The Price is Right, lent his support to the case, not only by narrating the investigation video and writing letters to two major grocery chains asking them to end their sale of veal, but by also joining MFA's Executive Director, Nathan Runkle, at a news conference in Los Angeles. In total, MFA held five news conferences, each generating massive mainstream exposure to the sad plight of calves raised for veal.

Here is a quick roundup of some of that coverage:
