Nearly 1000 Pigs Found Dead: Help us Seek Justice
friend of farm animals,
I’m contacting you today because I need your help in seeking justice for nearly 1000 pigs abandoned on a Fulton County, Pennsylvania farm. All were found dead from apparent starvation. Evidence from the ongoing investigation has shown that these animals struggled to escape from their confinement barn. Some were found dead outside of the facility.
These pigs died a horrible death, struggling for freedom, and no one came to their rescue. There is absolutely no excuse for this unconscionable neglect, and the people responsible for this tragedy should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. That’s why I’m contacting you today, to ask for your help in seeking justice for these animals.
Farm animals, like all animals, have feelings and deserve to be treated with respect. But their lives are so demeaned today that when we read news articles about their suffering and death, these animals are often referenced in terms of their monetary value. It’s important to remember that pigs and other farm animals are as intelligent and sentient as cats or dogs. Imagine if these were dogs found starved to death by the hundreds in a warehouse. The public would be outraged, and that should be the case here too.
That’s why we need you to take a few minutes today to contact the Fulton County District Attorney to ask that he seek justice for these pigs and prosecute to the fullest extent of the law anyone found to be responsible for this neglect.
Yours in compassion,
Gene Baur, President & Co-Founder
