Dressed To Kill?

If like predecessors from other Wagner Farm / Glenview Clovers 4-H projects, these lambs and pigs will have their own lives taken from them as the 2016 project season nears completion. The Lake County (IL) Fair begins on Wednesday, and the animal auctions are on Saturday.

"I was horrified to learn that the Glenview Park District has decided to sell the Glenview 4H project animals at an auction for slaughter rather than accept offers to find sanctuary placements for them."
- a parent who contacted Wagner Farm / Glenview Park District this past summer stating that she and her husband, who she noted were neither vegan or animal rights activists, withheld their child from camp on a particular day and instead opted to pay additionally for alternative child care for that day rather than send their child on a camp group excursion to Wagner Farm.

Many people have also expressed their concern over this year's pig seen over an extended period of time in quarantine (a pig last year also faced the same situation before staff acknowledged that the pig was sold at auction), with the basic issue being why these pigs (and lambs) are even at Wagner Farm to begin with.

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.



The lambs are seen here with most of them "dressed" - wearing jackets to apparently keep them clean before prize judging at the Lake County (IL) Fair - where, if like predecessors from the Wagner Farm / Glenview Clovers 4-H club, they will be sold at auction (this year Saturday, July 30) and go on to slaughter shortly thereafter.

A Friend In Need

A fellow pig seemed to be trying to help this pig out of the quarantine stall but eventually gives up and walks off with other pigs. The quarantined pig seemed to be hoping for additional help from another pig walking by.

Why these 4-H animals are even at Wagner Farm to begin with, with sale to auction and slaughter being the ultimate outcomes noted over the course of numerous years, is the core issue in this situation of a pig who has been quarantined.

video

These lambs are also part of the 2016 Wagner Farm Glenview Clovers 4-H programming and, if like their predecessors from other project years, will be sold to auction and slaughter in about a week.




*************************
Regardless of any veterinary care and advisement for these animals that is being noted by Wagner Farm, the issue with much of the public is why these animals are even at Wagner Farm to begin with, and the many sale to auction and ultimate slaughter outcomes that have been an ongoing part of Wagner Farm's 4-H programming.

This pig was seen this morning as well - still in quarantine - trying to interact as best as possible with another pig. Pigs are known to often be social animals and to many, clearly this kind of restrictive social interaction with other pigs is not only of concern, but the ultimate reason behind it is also in question.

Many are undoubtedly going to be questioning if the issue with this year's pig in quarantine is also one of being treated to ultimately get the pig to the upcoming end of the season programming - coming up over the next two weeks - and to auction, especially since one other pig was reported as already having been euthanized.

**************************

Just weeks after confirmation by senior management personnel from Wagner Farm that one of the pigs observed by Wagner Farm Rescue Fund personnel as missing from Wagner Farm had been euthanized due to a rectal prolapse, senior management personnel has now confirmed to Wagner Farm Rescue Fund personnel that yet another pig, who has been seen in confinement in a separate stall in the pig area, is under watch for a possible rectal prolapse

In last year's project, a pig was also seen in quarantine toward the end of the season's programming. Wagner Farm Rescue Fund personnel was told by a staff member that the pig had undergone surgery.

Additionally, when asked after the end of the project season if this pig who had been reported as injured, having had surgery, and had basically been quarantined for about a month had also gone to auction, it was confirmed by this staff member. When asked further if the pig had gone through surgery and quarantine to heal just to go to auction, the answer was affirmative.

How many more animals in Wagner Farm's Glenview Clovers 4-H programming are going to lose their lives?

Issues of Pig Rectal Prolapse Continue

**Another possible issue of pig rectal prolapse at Wagner Farm**
Just weeks after confirmation by senior management personnel from Wagner Farm that one of the pigs observed by Wagner Farm Rescue Fund personnel as missing from Wagner Farm had been euthanized due to a rectal prolapse, senior management personnel has now confirmed to Wagner Farm Rescue Fund personnel that yet another pig, who has been seen in confinement in a separate stall in the pig area, is under watch for a possible rectal prolapse.

(pig quarantined this year)

Numerous cases of illness, injury, sudden death, and euthanasia involving the months-old Wagner Farm Glenview Clovers 4-H lambs and pigs while being held at Wagner Farm has been an ongoing issue throughout multiple project seasons.
Another disturbing aspect of this Glenview Clovers 4-H programming is that there have also been complaints made to Wagner Farm Rescue Fund by visitors to Wagner Farm about what can be considered by many at the very least as rough handling of project animals, which has also been observed by Wagner Farm Rescue Fund personnel on numerous occasions.
Regardless of any veterinary care and advisement for these animals that is being noted by Wagner Farm, the issue with much of the public is why these animals are even at Wagner Farm to begin with, and the many sale to auction and ultimate slaughter outcomes that have been an ongoing part of Wagner Farm's 4-H programming.
In last year's project, a pig was also seen in quarantine toward the end of the season's programming. Wagner Farm Rescue Fund personnel was told by a staff member that the pig had undergone surgery.
Additionally, when asked after the end of the project season if this pig who had been reported as injured, having had surgery, and had basically been quarantined for about a month had also gone to auction, it was confirmed by this staff member. When asked further if the pig had gone through surgery and quarantine to heal just to go to auction, the answer was affirmative.

Many are undoubtedly going to be questioning if the issue with this year's pig in quarantine is also one of being treated to ultimately get the pig to the upcoming end of the season programming and to auction, especially since one other pig was reported as already having been euthanized.

To note in regard to the pig from last year reported by Wagner Farm personnel as having gone through surgery and quarantine to heal just to go to auction, two other pigs had already been lost in last year's programming - one pig reported as having been found dead in the pig enclosure, and another one suffering a heart attack.
 If like their predecessors from other project years, these pigs (and lambs in the next enclosure) from the Glenview Clovers 4-H club at the public funded Wagner Farm will be sold at auction at the upcoming Lake County (IL) Fair on the last week of July for ultimate slaughter.

Facilitating Animal Exploitation

If like their predecessors from other project years, these pigs (and lambs in the next enclosure) from the Glenview Clovers 4-H club at the public funded Wagner Farm will be sold at auction at the upcoming Lake County (IL) Fair on the last week of July for ultimate slaughter.
