Don't Allow Michigan to get away with it!

Thanks to Yart for the Heads up.

If these pigs are declared illegal (which according to them, my Missy would be illegal) will it happen in other States? Will all our heritage breeds be considered feral?



You can help at Bakers Green Acres.

And please pass this video on.


Here is the link for the petition

Incredibly stupid and short sighted, given just how easily any breed of pig can go feral if it gets out especially early in life.

Shared the video, now I'm off to their website to donate what little I can. I hope they win in court, since my goal in life is to get out of town and raise my own animals here in Washington. Thanks for sharing!

There is also a petition on Change.org (sorry, I don't have the link). so far only a few have signed but I don't know if word has gotten around much yet.

Odysseus, agreed

KT, thank you!

Judy, will have to look for it. It scares me a bit, because all pigs have boar heritage, and if only the pink factory pigs are allowed, wow what a mass extension will begin here in the US.
