VENICE - The screams of a dying pig filled the Sarasota County Commission chambers on Tuesday as animal-rights activists played videos they say show how animals would suffer during proposed hog hunts on county lands.
PLEASE pass this on to everyone!
The Sarasota County Commissioners' meeting regarding a DOG HOG HUNT has been changed to
July 10th, Tuesday, at 1:30 at the South County Courthouse, in Venice -4000 South Tamiami Trail.
PLEASE ATTEND - WE NEED NUMBERS THERE TO REPRESENT A HUMANE VOICE.
PLEASE email the commissioners to vote against the proposal to conduct a any hog hunts with dogs on the Deer Creek Preserve and the Shewe Tract.
The ONLY weapons used to kill these huge hogs are DOGS AND KNIVES. That's right, no guns, they are STABBED TO DEATH.
Children are allowed to watch or participate.
The hogs are mutilated and suffer a slow and torturous death. Dogs are often maimed and suffer and can die a horrible death.
There are other viable methods to control the hog population.
We acknowledge the hog population needs to be controlled, but NOT LIKE THIS.
