GREELEY, Colo. (AP) A woman who secretly filmed a video showing calves being dragged, kicked and thrown at a northeastern Colorado cattle company in an attempt to expose animal abuse has been charged with animal cruelty herself.

Taylor Radig was charged with the misdemeanor after the Weld County Sheriff's Office investigated videos she took between July and September while she was a temporary employee at Quanah Cattle Co. near Kersey.

The video released by the animal rights organization Compassion Over Killing led to animal abuse citations for three men. The sheriff's office says failure to report the alleged abuse in a timely manner adheres to the definition of acting with negligence and substantiates the animal cruelty charge against Radig.

Compassion Over Killing's director, Erica Meier, tells The Greeley Tribune (http://bit.ly/1bg9gaY) that Radig merely witnessed others committing abuse.
