An animal-rights group in British Columbia wants to know why there has been a 19-month delay in prosecuting a farm animal cruelty case. Vancouver Humane Society spokesman Peter Fricker says the government hasn't explained why no charges have been laid against a Fraser Valley dairy farm and eight of its employees after a disturbing video revealed dairy cows being viciously abused at Chilliwack Cattle Sales.
