WHEATLAND, Wyo. – Five former employees of Wyoming Premium Farms were recently convicted on animal cruelty charges, according to The Humane Society of the United States.

Richard Pritekel, Edward Pritekel, Kali Oseland and David Bienz were each convicted on multiple counts of cruelty to animals, HSUS said. The animal rights group brought the allegations against the pork producer in May with undercover video depicting workers abusing piglets and hogs.
