PETA Germany Saves 100+ Animals

Posted by 5 years ago | Permalink | Comments (3)

Dozens of animals were rescued from a ramshackle farm in Arnsberg-Hüsten, Germany, after a whistleblower alerted PETA Germany that the animals were being kept in filthy, dilapidated sheds or were enclosed in broken wire fences—exposed to the elements, predators, and the beer-bottle-littered ground.

Upon investigation, staff members found 59 chickens, 34 rabbits, 25 ducks, and six geese, as well as the skins and heads of two dead rabbits and the carcasses of three dead and decaying animals, which were being eaten by rats. The whistleblower stated that the owner of the farm slaughtered animals and sold them to his neighbors.

PETA Germany staff members spent two days shooting video footage, and they used the footage to file a complaint with authorities, who ordered the farmer to surrender most of the animals. The church that owned the property also ordered the man out, and the city bulldozed the shacks. The man subsequently surrendered the rest of the animals, who were taken by PETA Germany and two other rescue groups. Not a bad weekend’s work, PETA Germany!

    God bless the benevolent humans who merit commendation for saving these helpless animals. The malevolent “humans” who mistreated and neglected the animals warrant condemnation and incarceration.
