It’s been a year since undercover video released last June shocked the country.
It showed employees at B.C.’s largest dairy farm, Chilliwack Cattle Sales, whipping, punching and kicking the cows, sometimes with chains.
It only took a few days for the BC SPCA to recommend charges.
But Vancouver Human Society spokesperson Peter Fricker wants to know why charges haven’t actually been laid.
“As it was such a high-profile case, we — and probably the public — expected it would be treated very seriously, and action would happen quite quickly.”
Fricker says Crown counsel hasn’t responded to their questions.
The company isn’t commenting since an investigation is ongoing, but a spokesperson admits staff have seen an “economic impact.”
