Greatest Predators To Lambs and Pigs at Wagner Farm Are Human

To many, despite known coyotes and foxes being abundant in the area, the apparent greatest predators and threat to their ongoing well-being that lambs (and pigs) at the public funded Wagner Farm, Glenview, IL actually have - even though these animals don't know it yet - are the Glenview Park District / Wagner Farm management and their Glenview Clovers 4-H club. Wagner Farm management has already acknowledged to Wagner Farm Rescue Fund that these lambs and pigs - like their predecessors from prior years - are already scheduled to be sold for slaughter.

The poignant sight and sound of a single lamb, just several months old, was seen and heard this morning when he was temporarily isolated from his flock and trying to reunite with them.

It became apparent after lengthy observation that the reason that this lamb was alone in the yard away from his flock was likely due to the gate to the stall being blown shut because of the wind while one lamb was on the outside, possibly having gone to the water bucket that was outside the stall, and the lambs on either side were unable to open the gate. The one lone lamb was even kicking at it, but the gate opens outward. Subsequently after an extended period of time and another wind gust, the gate then blew open. However, it wasn't until then that the cause of the problem was actually identifiable, especially since one of the pigs in the adjacent stall had been found placed alone in a quarantine stall earlier this week.
Even for what was apparently a short amount of time that the lamb was alone, the apparent distress of the lambs on both sides of the gate was palpable. Lambs are known to instinctively flock together to protect each other from predators, and instinct tells them that a single lamb situated away from the group is a prime target to be preyed on. The one lamb was likely terrified being alone like that, especially in an open area like a yard, and some of the other lambs were seemingly disturbed by it as well, knowing that one in their flock was alone and vulnerable.
And, what was additionally disturbing is that while this was occurring, a staff member was seen walking by the area several times with a group of children yet didn't stop to even investigate let alone solve the problem, despite a couple of the children stopping at the area, the closed gate easily viewed, all the bleating that was occurring, and this one lamb running around the yard alone and apparently distressed. Several other visitors to the farm noticed the commotion as well and commented about the poor lamb being alone and that the situation seemed amiss.
Management from the public funded Wagner Farm, Glenview, IL has already confirmed to personnel from the nonprofit animal advocacy organization Wagner Farm Rescue Fund that the lambs and pigs at Wagner Farm (part of their 2017 Glenview Clovers 4-H project) are already scheduled to be sold to slaughter at the end of the program season (July) - just like these animals' predecessors.

Indoctrinating Children To Exploit Animals

Please see Wagner Farm Rescue Fund for more information about the public funded Wagner Farm, Glenview, IL, whose Glenview Clovers 4-H Club, along with other Wagner Farm programming including Wagner Farm's "private" tours, such as for paying school and camp groups, essentially indoctrinates children to support animal agriculture and thereby the exploitation that accompanies it. Wagner Farm is a facility of the Glenview (IL) Park District.

*32 lambs and pigs are already being victimized as part of Wagner Farm's Glenview Clovers 4-H 2017 programming* - on top of the dozens already lost from their prior years' programming.



To many, 14 pigs and 5 lambs apparently weren't considered enough for Wagner Farm and their Glenview Clovers 4-H to send to auction and slaughter this year - an additional 13 lambs have just been brought in to join the 5 other lambs already there. This brings their current total to 14 pigs and 18 lambs.

Glenview, IL Park District and Wagner Farm: Revise Animal Exploitative Programming

As noted by many, the slaughter being off-site and at the hands of others doesn't excuse the public funded Wagner Farm's designated programming outcomes.




To many, 14 pigs and 5 lambs apparently weren't considered enough for Wagner Farm and their Glenview Clovers 4-H to send to auction and slaughter this year - an additional 13 lambs have just been brought in to join the 5 other lambs already there. This brings their current total to 14 pigs and 18 lambs counted as of today.
Additionally, one of the pigs is already in quarantine - after being at Wagner Farm for approximately less than three weeks - with what is being referred to by Wagner Farm management as an "abrasion". There have been ongoing issues in prior years with numerous 4-H project lambs and pigs being reported as sick, injured, or dead while at Wagner Farm - before they can even be sold by Wagner Farm and their 4-H club to auction and slaughter.

Rationality Doesn't Support Causing The Suffering Of Sentient Beings

As Canadian activist Twyla Francois so aptly puts it: “All animals have the same capacity for suffering, but how we see them differs and that determines what we’ll tolerate happening to them. In the Western world, we feel it wrong to torture and eat cats and dogs, but perfectly acceptable to do the same to animals equally as sentient and capable of suffering. No being who prides himself on rationality can continue to support such behaviour.” - Robert Grillo

Nothing Humane In Rejecting Compassion

There is a huge moral difference between killing from necessity and killing for pleasure. When we have plentiful access to plant-based food options, and a choice between sparing life or taking it — there is nothing remotely humane about rejecting compassion, and choosing violence and death for others just because we like the taste of their flesh, and because they cannot fight back. Might does not equal right. - Ashley Capps

The animals pictured are the latest group of exploited lambs (*5) and pigs (14) from the public funded Wagner Farm's Glenview Clovers 4-H club. Management at Wagner Farm has already confirmed to Wagner Farm Rescue Fund personnel that these lambs and pigs, like their predecessors from other Glenview Clovers 4-H projects, are scheduled to be sold for slaughter at the conclusion of this year's project this summer.

As noted by many, the slaughter being off-site and at the hands of others doesn't excuse the public funded Wagner Farm's designated programming outcomes.

In memory of the dozens of pigs and lambs already sold to their deaths via the sale to slaughter outcomes of the programming from the public funded Wagner Farm, Glenview, IL, which includes their Glenview Clovers 4-H lambs and pigs and numerous Fall/Winter education/display pigs.
As the public funded Wagner Farm has continuously rejected numerous offers by Wagner Farm Rescue Fund to humanely place many of the animals utilized at Wagner Farm including their 4-H animals, this is leading an increasing amount of people to question the motives and intent behind much of Wagner Farm programming outcomes which personnel knowingly results in the harm to and killing of animals.

Even the rooster who died last year was killed under questionable circumstances:

Wagner Farm Rescue Fund is a nonprofit animal advocacy organization who bears witness at Wagner Farm and was founded independent of Wagner Farm to address the animal welfare issues at this public funded farm.
Wagner Farm Rescue Fund exposes the myths of "humane" locavore animal agriculture programming stemming from a public funded facility, including events, education, and children's programming resulting in sales to slaughter of project animals.
