Cruely to livestock
Who do I contact to report animal cruelty regarding cows? Animals are confined to small barn yard; no room except to lay in manure piles; no usable grazing for animals if out of barnyard; deformed calf noted (both front legs bent at unnatural angle); animals filthy due to constant contact with manure.
Centre County Pennsylvania animal welfare
Thanks for your question, and your concern for the animals you observed. Animal welfare/cruelty issues in PA are investigated and handled by humane (police) officers.
You can find the appropriate person for your county by looking at the following website: http://www.agriculture.pa.gov/Services/Pages/Humane-Society-Police-Officers-Registry.aspx There may be numerous people listed for your county, but it is probably best if you look for the one closest to the location of the premises in question.
I hope this helps!
Have a great day,
