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. GREAT PERSON TO STICK UP FOR THE GREAT FARM ANIMALS HERE.

  2. Reporting and punishing animal cruelty–no matter the species–should be routine.

    No innocent helpless living creature should be suffering and the hands of sick evil humans.

    The poor little intelligent sweet pig and many chickens experienced hell at the hands of mean people. I would hate to know how long this horror was going on.

    Thankfully, D.A. Newell filed criminal charges. I just hope the punishment causing such physical and emotional pain to these animals–was severe enough! NO ONE should get away with torturing ANY animal! It just encourages a crueler sicker society–already bad enough.

    We need more people like this! Law enforcement, prosecutors and judges TAKE NOTE!!!!

  4. If it weren’t for that poor, abused piglet this horrific situation would never have come to light. Did no-one think to report it? There are many situations where one should interfere when cruelty is seen to be happening, it is not being nosey- it is being a responsible citizen.Mr. Newell, please see to it that this Simply Country are punished to the limit of the law and possibly introduce a system of a financial gain for people who will report such abuse. Thank you.

    JUST what does “a piglet falling apart” even mean?????

  6. This store should not merely be forced to change their ways, they should be forced to SHUT DOWN so no animal could possibly ever suffer due to their lack of care and concern, again.
