“CFIA ambushed Wholearth Farmstudio again this morning, arriving unannounced at 8:00 am to kill four of my seven lambs.
They are still alive.
CFIA left after unsuccessfully trying to euthanize them—let’s just say they could not get access to the lambs out in the field. They WILL return with force and more manpower to destroy them. They may return in an hour…at midnight…at 5:00am..who knows. They thrive on ambush tactics. We are talking four lambs and a middle-aged woman.
These lambs are the only remaining offspring of a heritage ram named Wholearth Fitz, that CFIA killed a few months ago. Despite CFIA’s promise to Montana Jones to save the semen and testes of the rare male Shropshire, they did not. She had hoped to use them on future females to restore the rare genetics.The four lambs are healthy. These four lambs are not guilty of having a disease—they just have a bloodtype that CFIA wants eradicated. Not just in Shropshires…This news clip’s misleading wording suggests that the lambs DO have it…but NO…it’s actually because of their genotype they want to kill them. It’s not the reporters fault really…the nonsensical CFIA reasoning is hard to understand for anyone..especially hard to absorb in a blur.CFIA is coming back to kill them…likely within 24 hours. Why is this sort of draconian government action still going on?Beautiful pastured heritage breed pigs are being slaughtered because they are not pink and don’t live miserable lives in cruel crates in corporate agribiz operations. Farmers are being charged because they drink healthy raw milk. People are fined for raising fresh eggs in their yards…WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO ABOUT IT!??!One way is to Show your support…LifeStock: A Call to Farms on Sept 30.
