The females are forced to give birth regularly in order to produce milk. The males are raised for a few months before being slaughtered for their meat, which is then sold at markets.Many of thegoats die as a result of the bad treatment and the violence they are exposed to daily. in PETA's video, corpses can be seen thrown on the ground and many of the other animals seem sick or injured.
