Posted on Snapchat – this recording was taken depicting a group of people forcing a baby calf to ingest alcohol mixed with milk.It is believed this happened in the Northern California Turlock area. The person who recorded the video is named Juan. It is unknown if the baby calf was hurt during the incident.We were contacted by a friend of the person who recorded the video expressing concern over the event, claiming that the bottle is milk mixed with alcohol. We reached out to Juan asking for information on the person in the video, status of the calf, and allegations made about alcohol being mixed into the bottle.When given a chance to cooperate he was condescending – stating he did not care and said, “fuck it post the video.” We are asking people to call local law enforcement to investigate the event.Turlock Police Dept 244 N Broadway, Turlock CA 209-668-5550Turlock Police Animal Control801 S Walnut Rd, Turlock, CA 209-656-3140#LifeMatters @animalhopeinlegislation @turlockpolice Turlock Chamber of Commerce

According to The Animal Hope & Wellness Foundation, a concerned citizen contacted the animal protection group expressing concern over the situation, claiming that the bottle was filled with both alcohol and milk.

“We reached out to Juan asking for information on the person in the video, status of the calf, and allegations made about alcohol being mixed into the bottle,” the group posted on their Facebook page. “When given a chance to cooperate he was condescending – stating he did not care and said, ‘F*** it post the video.'”

When the City of Turlock Police were notified and made aware of the incident, they issued the following statement asking for the public’s help.

“The Turlock Police Department has been made aware of, and is investigating, the incident involving a calf that was posted on social media. We ask that anyone with information about the incident (the address it happened at, any witnesses, etc.) call Dispatch at (209) 668-1200‬.”

An update from authorities has indicated the situation occurred in another district:

UPDATE: the incident has been determined to have occurred outside of our jurisdiction. The appropriate agency responsible for investigating this incident has been notified and is handling this incident moving forward.

Since the investigation began, the person posting the video has been cooperative. Local law enforcement and Animal Control have been out to the property; a veterinarian has since examined the calf and took blood which has been sent to a lab to be analyzed.

“At the moment the calf is in good health and doing okay. The video attached is of the calf being analyzed on site by a third party vet.”
