For six years I was an undercover investigator in factory farms
My name’s T.J. Tumasse and from 2007 to 2013 I did 15 undercover investigations into some of the biggest factory farms in the U.S. I’ve seen it all – people stomping on turkeys, chickens stuffed in cages so small they can’t spread their wings, violations at a kosher slaughterhouse, pigs kept in cages so restrictive they couldn’t turn around for four months straight – you name it.
Most of my investigations were conducted for the animal protection non-profit Mercy For Animals, as well as other organizations, and many of them led to felony convictions for animal abuse and changes at the local, federal and corporate levels.

I just started telling my story to the animal welfare community, but I’m here to tell my story to the general public for the first time. I look forward to answering your questions!
