Please STOP Triple F Ferret Farm from BURNING ALIVE animals!

    2. Petition by

      D Michelle

      Girard, OH

WHY is best explained with some details of the original investigation that then launched an official, ongoing USDA investigation:

"The three-minute video shows ferrets with gaping wounds, internal organs protruding from their rectums, and infected, bloody eyes and mammary glands. Newborn ferrets drag themselves along the floor of the facility after falling through their cages...."

- from the original investigation video

“When I entered barn three to care for weanlings, I noticed a strong smell of rotting flesh. I scanned the cages … and found a dead ferret within the group of ferrets ...The ferret's remains looked as if they were melting or liquefying”

“In picking her up to check for signs of a staph infection, I gently touched her forehead.....Almost instantly, her eyes seemed to explode”
- taken from the original investigator's notes  

 

WHY R these MONSTERS still caring for 7000+ animals!!?!? 

The morals of this company are pretty calloused over, so we can’t “cut” them there.  We need to “Cut” these people where it will hurt.  IN THE POCKET!  Demand a cessation of ALL government contracts with the monsters of Triple F Farm and cut off their $$$$.  

BLEED THEM DRY!   

 

PLEASE S&S any and all anti-Triple F Farm petitions <3

      First off, the petition updates do not affect previous signatures. At the time of signing, the petition you read and signed was immediately sent as it was via email.
      Second, the updates were as follows: 1) to reflect that SOME changes were made after the original investigation, the "current situation" was changed to "the situation that was uncovered at"; 2) the action request section now has more and stronger ACTIONS requested to read, "In addition to this, I would ask that random and multiple annual inspections of the premises, the presence of staff and their credentials, along with investigations into their practices, be conducted. Finally, I strongly wish for there to be no further plea bargaining or minimizing of the violations of Federal, state and local statutes of any observed inhumane atrocities be tolerated or allowed."

      Another action is underway at the main discussion group here:

    7. The BEST and WORST of news..

      D Michelle
      Petition Organizer

      We all knew it.
      And now brain researchers have proved it--animals are AWARE!

      The horrible conditions, the neglect, the agony all these little ones have gone through and are still enduring, they have been AWARE THE WHOLE TIME.
      Please continue to share this petition with other animal lovers.
      Together we can make a difference. <3

    9. CDC REcontracts with Triple F!!

      D Michelle
      Petition Organizer

      Even after being alerted to the horrors of 3F animal cruelty, the CDC once AGAIN made a new contract of $16,750 with 3F!
      I guess we are still not LOUD enough for the US government to hear us.
      PLEASE sign, share, and Share Again! We can not rest and let this grossly inhumane treatment continue. We can not rest until the US government STOPS IGNORING us!
      Thank you for all your support. ♥ ♥

    10. “STOP THE CRUELTY!” goes LIVE!

      D Michelle
      Petition Organizer

      The “STOP THE CRUELTY!” at 3F Farm goes live with their first offline campaign at the internationally recognized AFA show in Maryland, USA.
      You can read about it in the link above.
      And if your animal-loving friends haven’t signed on to “STOP THE CRUELTY!”, please share.

    12. UPDATE! Regarding the long awaited reinspection report from the USDA

      D Michelle
      Petition Organizer

      From the representative of the action against 3F, Barbara Osborn Clay: “I was and am still hoping that the action the USDA does is a mandatory downsizing...with us pounding the pavement asking the 3F CUSTOMERS to STOP DOING BUSINESS WITH THEM, it's the outcome we want. “
      So time 2 double check! ALL petitions to 3F customers sent? ALL letters to government officials sent? Roped in family and animal-loving friends? If PETLAND rescinded all contracts with 3F, getting other customers to dump 3F is without a doubt. DOABLE!

      As long as you have FB, ALL necessary files viewable @ this group page by members AND non-members alike.

    13. We will NOT STAND 4 THIS!

      D Michelle
      Petition Organizer

      According to the State Dept. Of Agriculture, documented situations like “In picking her up to check for signs of a staph infection, I gently touched her forehead.....Almost instantly, her eyes seemed to explode”, “When I entered barn three to care for weanlings, I noticed a strong smell of rotting flesh. I scanned the cages … and found a dead ferret within the group of ferrets ...The ferret's remains looked as if they were melting or liquefying” ARE TOTALLY ACCEPTABLE.
      THEY will not press charges against Triple F FOR ANYTHING!!
      Let the US government know this is NOT OVER!!
      Please continue to Share all petitions!

      The AFA's request to visit 3 F Farms' facility has gone unanswered...Until...the AFA is welcomed into their facility to view the conditions...we cannot cannot in good conscience allow 3 F Farms to affiliate themselves with us in any manner...
