How Are These Lambs and Pigs Actually Killed?

How are the pigs and lambs who are part of the public funded Wagner Farm's Glenview Clovers 4-H program actually killed? What happens to them shortly beforehand? Wagner Farm management has noted that the 18 lambs and 14 pigs from this year's programming, as it was with their predecessors from other years' programming, will be sold at auction for slaughter.



Wagner Farm management, in answer to Wagner Farm Rescue Fund questioning them previously as to the possible methods in the killing of their project lambs and pigs after they are sold, stated "I'm not the guy who does that" - you can go and drive around and check all those places and see how they do it.
Places like that actually are checked, so the question as to what possibly may happen or may have already happened regarding the actual deaths of even some of the lambs and pigs who are involved in Wagner Farm's 4-H programming - and other such related programs and events - might be answered by this vivid account from Toronto Pig Save, regarding their own recent witness-bearing of baby pigs brought to a slaughter house:
"There was no mercy for animals. The drivers used red puddles and electric prods to shove the pigs out from the trucks. The baby pigs were beaten relentlessly, and drivers were yelling and lashing out at them. You can tell, some of the drivers were enjoying the moment a lot as they felt empowered by the instruments they were using and impunity they felt. The paddles alone terrified animals as they were beaten by them in the farms before – many of them had scares left from the beatings. We were just standing and crying looking at this hell. At one point, we noticed a baby pig slipping through the legs of the driver and running back to the far corner of the truck. Few seconds later, she was viciously hit numerous times by the driver. She was screaming from pain... and fear... and terror. The truck was shaking as there was so much violence and resistance inside of it.
Once unloaded, there was a silence for a few minutes as the pigs were awaiting inside the slaughterhouse their final moment. But then the wrenching screaming resumed as 4 months olds were stunned in a gas chamber and their lungs were burned by chemicals. Not all of them will be killed – some of these poor souls will be boiled fully conscious in the tanks with hot water. The surreal horror scene was complemented by the blood truck that was being filled with pig blood through the pipe. And by slaughterhouse workers having their lunch and sitting by the truck at this very same moment of terror." Toronto Pig Save

Exploiting and Killing Animals Is What's Extreme

Human beings have no biological need to consume the flesh, milk or eggs of other animals. There is nothing "extreme" about refraining from causing harm when we can easily do so. On the contrary, when we have access to plant-based foods, what is extreme is exploiting and killing animals we have no need to harm at all. - Free from Harm


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.

Eating Animal Products: More Than Just Ourselves Affected




The so-called "choice" to eat animal products has a profound negative affect on far more than "just" the animals involved:

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.

"Meat cannot be procured without violence" - Dr. Melanie Joy

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.

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

#ThereIsNoHumaneSlaughter

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.
