1000 PIGS DEAD BY STARVATION - DEMAND CRIMINAL CHARGES

    1. Petition by

      KINSHIP CIRCLE

On 11/7/10 from 950 to 1,000 dead and rotting pigs were discovered at a factory-farm style confinement barn in Union Township, Fulton County, PA. Farm owners Daniel and Kerron Clark, who are divorcing, apparently deserted them months ago. The animals struggled to escape the building, but all succumbed to starvation. Several were found dead just outside the structure.

Daniel Clark was the last to leave the farm, sometime in August. Humane investigator Dennis Bumbaugh believes the pigs died “in the last several months,” based on decomposition levels. Rotting remains of six calves were also found. Bumbaugh says Daniel Clark will likely be charged, pending more investigation. Realtor Rebecca A. Glesner, who is showing the farm to prospective buyers, is not worried that 1,000 dead hogs will hinder its salability. “I think this is very normal in a lot of farming operations, that you're going to have dead animals.”
