GREELEY, Colo. (AP) -- Prosecutors have dropped animal cruelty charges against a woman who secretly videotaped calves being dragged, kicked and thrown at a northeastern Colorado cattle company.
Sheriff's deputies had cited Taylor Radig in November, saying she delayed reporting the treatment that she witnessed and that constituted cruelty.
The Greeley Tribune reports prosecutors dropped the case Friday, saying they didn't believe they could win a conviction.
Three people in northeastern Colorado were cited on misdemeanor animal abuse charges in November after the animal rights group Compassion Over Killing released Radig's video, shot at a Quanah Cattle Co. facility near Kersey, 55 miles northeast of Denver.
