Piglet Found Falling Apart From Neglect Deserves Justice

Target: Clifford Newell, District Attorney of Nevada County, California

Goal: Praise state District Attorney’s office for filing criminal charges against neglectful feed store.

A California feed store was reportedly discovered to be horribly neglecting their livestock when a piglet was discovered near death. The poor animal was reportedly literally falling apart, as portions of her ear were falling off, and she was covered in bites from larger piglets from whom she was unable to defend herself. Her rescue led to the discovery of hundreds of severely neglected chickens; 58 of these birds were reportedly dead, and others were so malnourished that they were feeding off those dead bodies. The District Attorney’s office intends to file criminal charges immediately.

This is a huge relief. Too many animals are forced to live in such horrific conditions in facilities such as this one, to the point where those who die are considered the lucky ones as they no longer need to suffer the pain of cramped cages, starvation, and sitting in their own waste.

With any luck, this store will be be forced change their ways to comply with animal welfare laws. Sign this petition to thank the District Attorney of Nevada for ensuring that the suffering of those animals was not in vain.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear District Attorney Newell,

Thank you for your intention to file criminal charges against the Simply Country feed store. The business has reportedly been neglecting their livestock to a horrific degree, allegedly forcing them to live in cramped, squalid conditions and allowing the living and malnourished chickens to feed on the bodies of the dead ones.

In this day and age, it should be a given that businesses properly care for any animals in their possession, yet such neglect continues on farms and in feed stores such as this. It is hoped that the consequences of their actions will force Simply Country to change their ways and take better care of their animals. Thank you for standing up for animal welfare by filing charges against this business.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. Put the feed store owner in jail for life and donate all his property to an organization that takes all the animals. Prosecute any other people working there that did not report this.

  2. Pigs suffer enough in the hands of factory farmers, now this suffer from this. Disgusting.

  3. I agree. It is common knowledge that pigs suffer horrible abuses in U.S. factory farms. Please prosecute this animal abuser to the full extent of the law. Resist the likely sabotage by Big Ag which has most if not all lawmakers in their pockets.

      As Ann says, poor pigs are subjected to the most inhumane treatment, mainly by the ignorant sadistic people who work on these farm factories. They can’t get jobs doing anything else and work unmonitored. CC TV should be mandatory in all areas where animals are kept. It would reveal to lawmakers just how rampant extreme animal abuse is

    People like the owner of this store need to suffer the same way these innocent animals are suffering!! Why they go with out punishment is beyond me. VERY SAD and SHAMEFUL!

    “If a man aspires towards a righteous life, his first act of abstinence is from injury to animals.” Albert Einstein
    “Compassion for animals is intimately connected with goodness of character; and it may be confidently asserted that he who is cruel to animals cannot be a good man.” Authur Schopenhauer

  6. Rosslyn Osborne says:

    “The physical sensibilities and instincts are common to animal and man.
    Man is, however, negligent of this reality and imagines that sensibility is peculiar to mankind, therefore he practices cruelty to the animal…..
    In reality what difference is there in physical sensations! Sensibility is the same whether you harm man or animal: there is no difference. Nay, rather, cruelty to the animal is more painful because man has a tongue and he sighs, complains and groans when he receives an injury and complains to the government and the government protects him from cruelty; but the poor animal cannot speak, it can neither show its suffering nor is it able to appeal to the government.
    If it is harmed a thousand times by man it is not able to defend itself in words nor can it seek justice or retaliate…..
    Therefore one must be very considerate towards animals and show greater kindness to them than to man…. Man is generally sinful and the animal is innocent; unquestionably one must be more kind and merciful to the innocent”. Baha’i Faith Writings
