I am an undercover investigator for a farmed animal protection group. Ask me anything!
I am an undercover investigator for U.S.-based farmed animal non-profit Animal Outlook. We’ve conducted investigations into meat, dairy and egg facilities. Most recently, we conducted the first-ever undercover expose of salmon farming in the U.S. at Cooke Aquaculture, where fish were stomped on and thrown, in addition to many other cruel standard practices. We also documented horrific abuse at a dairy factory farm that supplied Nestle.
As undercover investigators, we often live in rural areas without much contact with anyone outside of work, if any at all, for months at a time. I've investigated three factory farms, so I’m pretty familiar with isolation, and I’d like to give some advice to anyone adhering to the current stay at home order. We’re all in this together! If you’re struggling with isolation during the COVID-19 pandemic or curious about my life undercover, ask me anything!
Edit: I'm going to take a short break for now, but I'll be answering more questions periodically as they come in so feel free to ask away!
Edit2: Thanks so much for all your questions, and thanks to the mods for letting this take place! Stay safe, everyone.
