Don’t Keep Farm Animals in Cramped City Conditions

Target: Lori Lightfoot, Mayor of Chicago

Goal: Limit ownership of horses and other livestock in the city of Chicago.

One horse has reportedly died, and another suffered injury while being kept at a home on the southside of Chicago. An animal abuse investigation is underway in this case, prompting proposals for limiting ownership of livestock. Demand that livestock be ensured the humane treatment and lifestyle that they deserve outside of city limits.

“A farm is where horses belong. A farm is where livestock belongs. They don’t belong in the city of Chicago, particularly if you’re not trained or willing to take care of them,” stated Alderman Raymond Lopez of the 15th Ward. He and other aldermen have proposed restrictions on the ownership of livestock within city limits after multiple reports of animal abuse and cruelty surfaced at one southside address. Per those reports, one horse died, another endured injury, and a dog was found eating the remains of the dead horse.

Farm animals in Chicago can range from chickens to horses and there is currently no legal limit. Sign below and demand that Mayor Lightfoot restrict the ownership of farm animals to prevent animal abuse and neglect.


Dear Mayor Lightfoot,

One horse allegedly died, and another suffered injury while residing at an Englewood address. A dog was reportedly found eating the remains of the dead horse as well, prompting an animal cruelty investigation and outrage from aldermen across the city.

Ownership of farm animals in the city of Chicago has long been debated, but this particular case is tragic, and these animals apparently lived in inhumane conditions unnecessarily. No farm animal deserves to suffer due to environmental limitations or untrained handlers. I demand that you restrict ownership of livestock in the city of Chicago for the benefit of the animals.
