There are many reasons for conducting undercover investigations and one very important one is doing undercover investigations in to animal cruelty situations such as in a dairy farm or in a slaughterhouse. However, you have to keep in mind that these situations can be very dangerous and therefore, a lot of planning needs to be put in to such a mission. You have to remember that when it comes to the meat and dairy industries, there are a lot of people who make a lot of money from them. These are billion dollar industries and they also invest billions in to keeping the actual situation that happens inside of them a secret from the consumer.
The dairy industry shows the consumer happy cows in pastures while in reality, it is a shed full of cows sleeping in their own urine and filth being hooked on to machines but these are things that they do not want anyone to know and you exposing such things can make them lose a lot of money.
Equipment that you will need
In order to do an undercover investigation, you will need special equipment such as a strong microphone that is able to pick up sound and even a Phantom 3 advanced drone if you can afford to buy one. Keep in mind that when it comes to dairy farms, the areas that are exposed to the public are minimal while the areas that are hidden are plenty and this is where a drone might come in useful.You could also get a DJI spark drone if finances allow it as it is known for its great features and ability to capture footage without you having go to the place yourself but when using a drone for undercover work, it is important for you to be very careful.
In the weeks before the mission while it is being planned, it is important for you to look in to the safety and the risks that are involved.
You might be surprised to find that when it comes to the dairy and meat industries, anything is possible and people have even been murdered for trying to expose the truth about the industries. There is a lot of money going in to a lot of people’s pockets with these industries and even the government itself is involved in many cover ups which is why there is danger but at the same time, it is vital that people expose these cruel industries because so many lives are lost every single day within those walls.
