In this capacity, Mr. Hauff works closely with attorneys, veterinarians, and animal welfare experts to compile farmed animal cruelty cases, which have strengthened animal protection laws. His undercover investigations department has gained national recognition for its extensive work to document and publicize the institutionalized mistreatment of factory-farmed animals.
