An Ohio Agriculture Group put out a warning for farmers around the country to be careful about whom they hire.

They said animal rights activists are allegedly trying to get hired at livestock farms in order to go undercover and see how the farm is operating and how the animals are being treated.

The Agriculture group suggested that these activists are gearing up for attention as we head into the election year stretch. WFFT Local reached out the PETA organization for comment about this article, but they declined to comment.
