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!

Dear Commissioner Margaret Hamburg, M.D. and Director Glenda Barfell,
Please allow me to voice my distress and disapproval of the situation that was uncovered at Triple F Farms of Pennsylvania. (Triple F Farms, 3573 Vetter Rd., Sayre, PA 18840 ). The cries of the babies in videos from the investigation, much less the images of gross abuse and neglect, will haunt me for the rest of my life. But to then know that the US government buys ferrets from this very company, in essence supports these horribly cruel actions, fills me with deep sadness and disappointment.
As a concerned animal lover, I, for one, will not be quiet and tolerate such gross inhumanity. There are local, state and Federal laws regulating this facility, their operation, their intentional cruelty and neglect.
I politely request that any and all government contracts with Triple F be canceled immediately. 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.
Thank you for your time and consideration to this matter.
