What's Wrong With Lightning's Eye?

What is wrong with Lightning's eye, red with mucous or pus dripping out, at the public funded Wagner Farm in Glenview, IL? Is she in discomfort?
Lightning the cow, who is in her teens, was spotted with this eye condition today. It was spotted last week as well, and a similar condition was enough to be spotted this past June in the same eye of this cow.



The issue isn't necessarily that there's an eye condition - that happens to cows in sanctuary, too. The primary issue is - is she being treated for this apparently ongoing condition? There should be a simple answer to a simple question asked - is a doctor going to check it out?
However at Wagner Farm, too often as it was in this case, management personnel who are salaried with public funds respond to a few simple questions from a member of the public with an adversarial reply - or no reply.
Also, as it was in this case, personnel too often just simply walk away when they apparently don't like questions about the health and welfare of animals in their care.
In this case, the answer given to the simple question is a doctor going to check it out was 'it isn't up to me' - before personnel walked away into the barn and refused to answer the question if it was going to be brought up to who does make the decision about contacting the doctor.
Between the eye being seen in a compromised condition last week and this past June - and a non-answer given by a different Wagner Farm management personnel at that time as well - many might ask if the same scenario would be going on if the eye was that of one of Wagner Farm's apparently coveted 4-H cows, owned by one of their often seemingly catered to 4-H members, rather than that of an elderly cow who isn't used in their 4-H programming.
Is Lightning's eye going to be seen by a doctor and treated??

Pay To Play?

Is there any kind of Pay to Play type scenario at the public funded Wagner Farm when it comes to now accessing the lambs and pigs area? It seemingly depends on who's offering to pay.
Multiple camp groups of minor age children were seen today being allowed into the lambs and pigs area under "construction" which is being blocked off to the general public - "coincidentally" an area where animals are being held who are the subject of much public controversy due to their being reported as scheduled to be sold at auction to slaughter on July 29, and a pig who has been held in a quarantine stall for the past two months.

http://wagnerfarmrescuefund.blogspot.com/2017/07/new-construction-fencing-wont-deny.html

One of the signs posted on the fence states that there will be no public access without supervision, which can allude to access being possible WITH supervision.


Therefore, Wagner Farm Rescue Fund personnel went to speak with management personnel today requesting supervised access to the lambs and pigs area per the sign. Permission was denied. Wagner Farm Rescue Fund personnel asked if they were to pay to get in like the children's group supposedly have, would permission be granted? The answer was no, but that they weren't trying to keep just this Wagner Farm Rescue Fund personnel out of the lambs and pigs area, but all the general public. Is that any better??
If there isn't a safety issue, why is the general public being denied access to this area, and if there is a safety issue, why are the lambs and pigs continuing to be held in this area and minor age children coming and going from this area?

Wagner Farm management personnel has already confirmed to Wagner Farm Rescue Fund personnel that these 2017 project lambs and pigs will be sold to slaughter (18 lambs and 14 pigs) and that some of the lambs have already been moved to a separate shed area on the property for fattening.





These pigs includes a pig who has been in a quarantine stall for the past two months, despite requests for her release to sanctuary.

Wagner Farm's Own "Wall"?

Who is being kept behind the public funded Wagner Farm's own construction fence wall, as well as in the fattening shed:




An increasing amount of people are questioning the timing of this fencing which is denying public access to the area where Glenview Clovers 4-H pigs and lambs are being held, whose upcoming sale to slaughter has happened to recently generate much public attention and letters of complaint to Wagner Farm / Glenview Park District, especially regarding the pig who has been held in a quarantine stall for the past two months.


And, as the construction site notes, "program participants" aren't included in this access ban - so what kind of construction is going on in an area itself where animals are being held and minor age children are allowed to enter? This is an example of the questions being asked.
Wagner Farm management personnel has already confirmed to Wagner Farm Rescue Fund personnel that these 2017 project lambs and pigs will be sold to slaughter (18 lambs and 14 pigs) and that some of the lambs have already been moved to a separate shed area on the property for fattening.



These pigs includes a pig who has been in a quarantine stall for the past two months, despite requests for her release to sanctuary.

New Construction Fencing Won't Deny Public Access To Sale To Slaughter Truths

The public funded Wagner Farm: access to lamb and pig area denied to the general public - again.
Wagner Farm had generated general public access issues when these animals first arrived at Wagner Farm several months ago by allowing private, paying school groups to enter the area - not even under construction then - while denying access to the general public during open public hours.



Wagner Farm's construction fencing keeping the general public out that just went up isn't going to deny access to the public as to the truths of the animals being kept behind this fencing, or the sale to slaughter Glenview Clovers 4-H program outcomes that these animals are being subjected to.


And with the ongoing public exposure that there has been of their sale to slaughter programming along with the letters of complaints about this programming being sent to Wagner Farm / Glenview Park District personnel, the timing and location of the fence going up that is denying access to the public - again - to view most of these animals is already being questioned and is undoubtedly leading to even more issues and questions about Wagner Farm.


How long is this fencing going to be kept up? Until these lambs and pigs are taken to auction and sale to slaughter? Can this be attributed to just coincidence? To note, though, Wagner Farm has also numerous other issues of denial to the public to public access areas during open public hours with various reasons given.



Wagner Farm management personnel has already confirmed to Wagner Farm Rescue Fund personnel that these 2017 project lambs and pigs will be sold to slaughter (18 lambs and 14 pigs) and that some of the lambs have already been moved to a separate shed area on the property for fattening.



These pigs includes a pig who has been in a quarantine stall for the past two months, despite requests for her release to sanctuary.

Half-Truths At Wagner Farm Won't Shield Reality Of Sale To Slaughter Outcomes

Why are school and camp groups at the public-funded Wagner Farm, Glenview, IL, routinely heard being told, at best, what are described by many as only half-truths, such as the lambs and pigs will be at Wagner Farm until they're taken to the Lake County Fair, and that the lambs and pigs are given good food so that they get big and strong?

Where is the rest of the information for these children, such as these lambs and pigs are taken to the Lake County Fair and sold at auction for slaughter, and apparently given good food so that they get big and strong to qualify for prize judging and reaching a market weight to qualify to be sold at auction for slaughter? Why aren't the final outcomes for these animals included in these tour rhetoric? Perhaps due to the negative impact it might have on Wagner Farm's chosen program outcomes and audiences in support of animal agriculture?




Wagner Farm management personnel has already confirmed to Wagner Farm Rescue Fund personnel that these 2017 project lambs and pigs will be sold to slaughter (18 lambs and 14 pigs) and that some of the lambs have already been moved to a separate shed area on the property for fattening.

And Still She Waits

And still she waits..
As this pig grows, the amount of available stall space for her to move around in gets smaller.
Wagner Farm management personnel has already confirmed to Wagner Farm Rescue Fund personnel that these 2017 project lambs and pigs will be sold to slaughter (18 lambs and 14 pigs) and that some of the lambs have already been moved to a separate shed area on the property for fattening.

No Mud Hole For This Victimized And Quarantined Pig

Some of the Glenview Clovers 4-H pigs at the public funded Wagner Farm, Glenview, IL, cool off in a mud hole and others lay together in another part of the stall area - while one pig lays quarantined in a separate stall area for almost six weeks now. Her snout can be seen in this video and photo, sticking out of the bottom of the stall.
As this pig grows, the amount of available stall space for her to move around in gets smaller.
Wagner Farm management personnel has already confirmed to Wagner Farm Rescue Fund personnel that these 2017 project lambs and pigs will be sold to slaughter (18 lambs and 14 pigs) and that some of the lambs have already been moved to a separate shed area on the property for fattening.
