Two Wisconsin dairy farm employees seen on an undercover video have entered “no contest” pleas to animal mistreatment and disorderly conduct charges. Mercy for Animals released a video last December showing the two defendants and others mistreating cows at Weise Brothers Dairy Farm near Greenleaf, Wisconsin. The video was shot by a Mercy for Animals person posing as an employee of the farm.
Lucia Martinez of Wrightstown was found guilty of two ordinance violations for the mistreatment of animals and disorderly conduct. She was ordered to pay $1,292 in fines and court costs. Abelardo Jaimes of Menasha was found guilty of one ordinance violation and disorderly conduct and fined $709. Jaimes is still employed at the farm, Martinez was fired when Weise Brothers became aware of the video.
Two other employees facing charges in the case are due in court in May 5th and 6th.
