Demand Cruel Wyoming Pig Farm Be Shut Down

Target: Leanne Correll, Director of the Wyoming Livestock Board

Goal: End animal abuse in Wyoming pig farm

Nine employees of a Wyoming Premium Farms facility were recently charged with animal abuse after an undercover investigation revealed them casually punching, sitting on, and throwing pigs and piglets. The report from the Humane Society of the United States to the Wyoming Livestock Board described the abuse as endemic to the way the farm was run, and that the employees “think [the abuse] is normal, because they’ve just been doing it so long.” Despite this, the farm where the abuse took place remains operational and the upper management of the farm remains untried. A toxic environment like this farm must be shut down before more abuses take place.

Conditions on the farm were extremely unsanitary and unsafe, for both the animals and workers. Pig feces or viscera were often left in cages, and dead piglets were oftentimes simply dropped in buckets and left in back rooms. In addition, Humane Society investigators found that gestation crates, devices that immobilize the pigs for the majority of their lives and have recently come under a great deal of fire, were being used throughout the farm.

It is not enough to merely try these workers, when the environment and administration of the farm contributed to the abuses taking place therein. The only way to prevent more of these abuses from happening in the future is to petition the Wyoming Livestock Board to have this Wyoming Premium Farms facility shut down.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Leanne Correll,

While the Wyoming Livestock Board’s decision to try the abusive employees involved in the Wyoming Premium Farms case is commendable, we believe that it is not enough. These employees tortured pigs and exposed them to unsanitary and unsafe conditions in a form of cruelty that simply does not occur in a well-regulated farm. Firing a small number of workers is not a long term solution to the problem.

Instead, the Wyoming Livestock Board should pressure Wyoming Premium Farms, by legal action if necessary, to shut down the specific facility where these abuses took place. It is unfair and ineffective to merely punish the workers who directly took place in the abuse, when the entire farm, its culture and administration were in some way guilty of allowing or condoning this abuse.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    This is absolutely horrible and cruel and needs to stop and ALL those involved punished to the fullest extent.

  7. When, when are the human race going to wake up to the fact that WE MUST RESPECT ALL the creatures our precious Lord created. It was HIS instruction to us to look after them and protect them, NOT abuse and torture HIS creations. What will they do when the tables are turned? Which is going to happen, read the Word of God and your will see, payback time is coming and then it will be the animals feasting on the flesh of man!!Deu_28:26 And thy carcase shall be meat unto all fowls of the air, and unto the beasts of the earth, and no man shall fray them away. Deu_32:24 They shall be burnt with hunger, and devoured with burning heat, and with bitter destruction: I will also send the teeth of beasts upon them, with the poison of serpents of the dust. Jer_7:33 And the carcases of this people shall be meat for the fowls of the heaven, and for the beasts of the earth; and none shall fray them away. Many more place in the Bible tells us what will happen to evil people!
