Save 67 Farm Animals From Imminent Massacre

Target: Latimer Minster Church of England

Goal: Don’t allow 67 farm animals to be put to death over a land dispute.

Sixty-seven farm animals are set to be killed in less than a week, unless their owner can receive an extension on repossession proceedings.

For more than two years, Olivia Mikhail ran the UK’s largest micro pig farm. Her dream life came to a sudden end in February, when she was evicted by her landlord, the Latimer Minster Church of England.

“Their behavior is completely un-Christian – very, very aggressive and unnecessary,” Mikhail told local news outlet Bucks Free Press.

The church claimed Mikhail violated an agreement to use the land exclusively for agricultural purposes, though Mikhail herself says she never made such an agreement. Despite this, bailiffs seized her farm in late February, and now say they will dispose of all personal property on the premises. This includes Mikhail’s 67 pigs, goats and chickens. All these animals could be killed unless Mikhail can either relocate them in the next few days, or be granted extra time.

Mikhail says she has tried negotiating with the church, pleading for more time to find homes for all her animals.

“We have tried to mediate with them, we have tried to write to them, tried to have meetings with them – nothing has worked,” she said.

If you believe these animals shouldn’t be killed over a property dispute, please sign our petition demanding the landlord give Mikhail a little extra time.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Latimer Minster Church of England,

Your property dispute with tenant Olivia Mikhail could be about to end in the mass killing of 67 farm animals, including pigs, chickens and goats. We understand Mikhail is facing eviction proceedings from her farm over a dispute related to land usage. This dispute is between you and Mikhail, and it’s inhumane to allow these dozens of animals to die because of a disagreement between a landlord and a tenant. Indeed, compassion and humanity towards animals are Christian traits that should be appreciated by the Latimer Minster Church of England. In Genesis 1:28, God said, “Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground.”

Prominent Christian animal rights advocate Professor Andrew Linzey has argued this stewardship over nature is a calling for all of us to care for animals, and treat them as “precious beings in God’s sight”.

“Christians whose eyes are fixed on the awfulness of crucifixion are in a special position to understand the awfulness of innocent suffering,” he once said.

No matter what our beliefs may be, all of us can agree the mass killing of 67 farm animals would be an awful amount of suffering inflicted on the innocent. These animals are innocent, and the church should provide enough time for Mikhail to relocate her animals.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    If for some reason it is not playing, it is Karen Carpenter singing, ” Bless the beasts a d the children” A good one to remember at all times in our increasingly cruel world.

THIS is INHUMANE TO KILLING of innocent HELPLESS Defenseless AND VOICELESS INNOCENT ANIMALS That ABUSERS SHOULD BE STOP AND immediately punishment IN JAIL.

Religion is bunch OF hypocrate BASTARD SOULLESS AND HEARTLESS EVIL .YOU are NOT a HUMAN. SHAME ON YOU BASTARD SHAME ON YOU CHURCH of England. YOU ARE HEARTLESS AND Disgraceful INHUMANE. THIS is unacceptable.

  3. The most humane countries in the world are the ones with little or no religion. The stronger the religious influence in a country, the more backward and barbaric the culture. These people follow like sheep and can’t think for themselves. Don’t expect any compassion from religious authorities, they are all about control and manipulation sadly.

  4. land and wealth are all the church care about,here in france all churches and land belong to the people,not those rich lying toads who claim religeon.Animals are all innocent unlike humans and the church tycoons,who behave all pious and are exactly the opposite.
