Charge dropped for woman who filmed alleged calf abuse at cattle company

GREELEY, Colo. - Prosecutors have dropped animal cruelty charges against a woman who secretly videotaped calves being dragged, kicked and thrown at a northeastern Colorado cattle company.

Sheriff's deputies had cited Taylor Radig in November, saying she delayed reporting the treatment that she witnessed and that constituted cruelty.

The Greeley Tribune reports ( ) prosecutors dropped the case Friday, saying they didn't believe they could win a conviction.

Three people in northeastern Colorado were cited on misdemeanor animal abuse charges in November after the animal rights group Compassion Over Killing released Radig's video, shot at a Quanah Cattle Co. facility near Kersey, 55 miles northeast of Denver.
