Two more Wiese Bros. Farm workers convicted on animal abuse

- GREEN BAY, Wis. (WFRV) - Two more dairy workers have pleaded no contest to animal cruelty charges after they were caught on tape abusing cows at a Brown County farm.

Crescencio Pineda and Misael Monge-Minero were charged after the group "Mercy for Animals" released video showing abuse at the Wiese Brothers Farm in Greenleaf last year.

It shows Monge-Minero abusing cows, and Pineda using machinery to hoist injured animals in the air.

These are the third and fourth convictions as a result of the investigation.
