A large group consisting of around 150 vegans has stormed a farmer’s land and occupied his farm in an attempt to promote “animal liberation.
In distressing footage, a Queensland cattle farmer is seen yelling at the vegans to leave and running around nervously as they forced their way onto his grounds.
All members of the protesting group were seen wearing a white outfit with a black shirt that read: “Meat the Victims.”
According to feeder David McNamee, who later spoke out about the incident to Daily Mail Australia, the vegans’ actions put not only his family but also the animals at tremendous risk.
“Don’t go f***ing through,” the man is heard yelling in the video which the activists later shared on a Facebook page called Animal Activist Collective.
Responding to David’s orders, one of the protesters said:
“You’re hurting animals here, we’re here to show the truth of what you’re hiding. The only reason you’re upset is because you’ve got something to hide.”
According to the reports, it wasn’t until the police arrived that the vegans left the property. Despite people trespassing, no arrests were made. However, the vegans took plenty of videos and pictures of dead cows to continue their social media campaigns.
“The message we are sharing is simple; animals are here with us, not for us,” Leah Doellinger wrote in a comment under one of the videos shared on Facebook.
“Animals lives are their right and what is happening to them is unjust, needless violence. There is no humane way to exploit and kill someone.
“The animals do not need better welfare standards or conditions, they need to be liberated, they need people to live vegan.”
While David claimed “’it remains unclear why our family business has been targeted by this group of activists,” another feedlot in the area was also targeted by the animal rights activists earlier this month.
