This is a topic that deeply moves me. Pigs have a special place in my heart. These people definitely don’t move me in any way that is positive, but I feel that it is important to be able to talk about what is upsetting as well. So here goes…
A week or so ago, I learned via social media about a horrific event that was to take place in St. Patrick’s Parish in Stephensville, Wisconsin. I wrote several letters to the people in charge because I couldn’t believe what they were going to do to these poor pigs during their fundraiser. Seriously?! What kinds of humans do this?
Here is what I wrote to them:
To Whom It May Concern:
I am writing you in regards to your annual church fundraiser. It deeply disturbs me that you are using pigs in such a horrific manner. Why?
Pigs have the IQ of a 6 year old child. They are 10 x smarter than dogs. Domesticated pigs use the toilet and even flush afterwards. They are able to remember names and faces. Can even work levers to control things – like food, water, and can even adjust the air conditioner to their liking. They are smarter than monkeys. God must be disappointed in the human race when he sees such evil!
I respectfully ask you to not use pigs for such inhumane and illegal entertainment! What happened to an old fashioned bake and garage sale in order to raise money?
My Name & Title
I wasn’t the only person who was deeply disturbed by this event. Over 66,000 signatures were collected, but to no avail. The event still happened and today 37 pigs died after being being brutally abused yesterday. They were punched in the face, kicked, body-slammed, yelled at and thrown on top of barrels. If this had happened to 37 dogs – who have a lower IQ than pigs – we’d all be up in arms. Well, dear human, please open the link below and if you’re able to please contribute $10 (or more) so that these individuals be brought to justice! This is abuse of highest caliber! If you’ve been following my blog, you know that I do not sell stuff on here nor do I ever ask anyone for money. Well, I’m not asking for myself, but on behalf of the pigs who died in such a grotesque and inhumane manner! This seriously twisted and archaic event must be put to an end!
I thank you from the bottom of my heart for contributing to this worthy cause:
