BOISE -- A  25-year-old dairy worker has been sentenced to one year of supervised probation for animal abuse.

Jesus Garza, 25, was found guilty of the abuse after a hidden camera captured employees at a south-central Idaho dairy beating and jumping on cows.

Prosecutors asked that he not be allowed to work with animals while he's on probation. However, Garza's defense attorney says the 25-year-old already has a job at another dairy -- where proper animal welfare policies are in place.
