Wrong Hair Color? The Michigan DNR Will Kill You..
Beginning April 1, 2012 a mass murder of ranch animals based on the color of their hair will begin in the state of Michigan. Michigan's Department of Natural Resources (DNR) has decided that ALL feral pigs/hogs must be "Destroyed" no matter if they are farmed animals or not. 30 yr generation farmers are in jeopardy after this ruling is enforced. Many Michigan farms have no choice but to continue their operations and hope the DNR doesn't come to their homes knocking or in their case "Shooting"..
The absolutely Insane part is how the Michigan's Department of Natural Resources (DNR) describe a "feral" pigs on their OWN website-
" A feral swine is a free-ranging pig. Feral swine are considered exotic, nuisance species and cause damage to agricultural lands and the environment. Feral swine can also have negative impacts on wildlife and livestock." - http://www.michigan.gov/dnr/0,4570,7-153-10370_12145_55230-230093--,00.html
1. "A feral swine is a free-ranging pig" is how they describe it. -
***Farm raised pigs of ANY breed are NOT "free-ranging" or Wild.
2. "Feral swine are considered exotic, nuisance species and cause damage to agricultural lands and the environment. -
*** Yes, WILD PIGS are "nuisance species and cause damage"..
3. "Feral swine can also have negative impacts on wildlife and livestock." -
*** Yes they can, because they are NOT controlled. Unlike Farms who "have fences and provide for their animals".. WILD PIGS will kill or hurt other animals..
