Apparently, according to a children's tour group leader at the taxpayer purchased and funded Wagner Farm, this will be the fate of these just weeks-old piglets, too, once they're a little bigger.
The taxpayer purchased and funded Wagner Farm has recently brought in their Fall display / program pigs, just weeks after their 4H pigs and lambs were sent to auction and slaughter.
For signing and sharing:
"Meat cannot be procured without violence" - Dr. Melanie Joy
Wagner Farm has repeatedly been rejecting requests made over many years to send these 4H animals to sanctuary, and is instead now rejecting all collaborative efforts offered by Wagner Farm Rescue Fund.
*Please see the exposes of Wagner Farm by Robert Grillo / Free from Harm and national journalist James McWilliams:
To many, the semantics of animal "ownership" often are used in various realms to facilitate numerous aspects of animal exploitation. To many, whether animals are owned by "private" parties or by the public, once they become part of a public-funded facility in any manner their immediate and ongoing
welfare also becomes the business of the public.
