Richard "Kudo" Couto is the animal activist responsible for the closure of an entire district of illegal slaughter farms in Northwest Miami-Dade County, through the use of commando tactics like secret surveillance.
By the time you're reading this on Saturday afternoon, Kudo's efforts should have led to another multi-agency raid on a massive illegal slaughter farm in Hialeah. He's been secretly taping the place for months.
Here's a video Kudo made of a hog being brutally slaughtered-- on behalf of another customer-- on the farm that was raided today. Be warned: Watching this footage could ruin your Saturday evening.

We'll be posting much more information on the raid in the coming week. For the time being, Kudo and animal welfare agencies are looking for people to take in rescued animals from the farm: Horses, cattle, sheep, goats, pigs, hogs, cats, dogs, and a variety of fowl.
