Mark: Saw your story on the animal abuse at Conklin Dairy Farm. I was so outraged, I sent a letter to Michael Skindell (Ohio House Representative from district 13). Here's the e-mail I sent to him:

Dear Mr Skindell:
I am a resident of Lakewood, and just saw the most disturbing video I have ever seen. The video was part of an expose Fox 8 News did on farm animal abuse at Conklin Dairy Farm. I have to say, I was not only outraged by what I saw, truly disturbed me. I don't typically have such an emotional reaction to news stories, but I wanted to reach through the television and take the crow bar out of that person's hand and start beating him with it.

I don't know what the laws are for such cases, nor do I know what can be done to curb this type of cruelty, but truly, whatever the penalties are, they are not tough enough. These people need serious jail time, and I'm talking YEARS, not months, and just like sexual predators, they should NEVER be allowed to be in the care of any animals EVER again. Finally, the owners of this farm should face significant fines as I hold the owner just as responsible.

Thank you for your attention, and I hope that you bring this to light in the Ohio House.

I hope that this gets some action in the Ohio House of Representatives. If you know of any further actions we can take, please let me know at Thanks!
