This is just so awful!
Two men from Tecumseh, Ontario are facing several criminal charges in one of the largest farm animal cruelty cases in years!!
The Windsor-Essex County Humane Society said they found over a dozen dead animals: ten pigs, two ducks and two sheep at the farm just east of Windsor.
The poor piggies who remained alive were starving, and many of them had turned to cannibalism to survive!
An investigator said:
"The remaining animals on the property were significantly lacking in food and many of them were in an advanced stage of starvation. Others were clearly under-nourished."
Farm owners John Holland and Eddie Blake are both charged with numerous animal cruelty offenses.
We can't even imagine how something gets to this stage!
Do they just decide to stop feeding their animals? Do they simply forget? How can anyone let something like this happen?!
We really hope justice is served!!
