Insane Michigan Government Announces Plan to Destroy Ranch Livestock Based on Hair Color

(NaturalNews) The state of Michigan is only days away from engaging in what can only be called true "animal genocide" -- the mass murder of ranch animals based on the color of their hair. It's all part of a shocking new "Invasive Species Order" (ISO) put in place by Michigan's Department of Natural Resources (DNR). This Invasive Species Order suddenly and shockingly defines virtually all open-range pigs raised by small family farms to be illegal "invasive species," and possession of just one of these animals is now a felony crime in Michigan, punishable by up to four years in prison.

The state has said it will "destroy" these pigs beginning in April, potentially by raiding local farms with government-issued rifles, then shooting the pig herds while arresting the members of the family and charging them with the "crime" of raising pigs with the wrong hair color. This may truly be a state-sponsored serial animal killing spree.

Reality check: You may think this story is some kind of early April Fools prank, but it isn't. This is factually true and verifiable through the documents, videos and websites linked below. The state of Michigan seriously intends to unleash a mass murder spree of pigs of the wrong color beginning April 1.

What the heck?

Second, Human is also an invasive species (We out competes all other species for resources), are they going to come for us next?

Call me paranoid

but when I see something like this I wonder if this whole story is some government covert sting operation designed to flush out liberty minded people who would be willing to fight for these people. I am sure some militias are contacting this family offering their support.

Paranoid? No. Asleep maybe.

So you didn't bother looking at any background info but you are sure "some militias" are gonna take care of it.

Yup. John Wayne and the cavalry are gonna come riding to your rescue too. That's the way it always happens on television.

Livestock destruction

Seval points: These pigs are being raised for food and profit. This is not about saving the pigs, it is about protecting whole genetic strains and the unremunerated destruction of private property. The article suggesting only swine with black hair will be destroyed is far too narrow. This Michigan bureaucracy has made itself an arm of industrialized agriculture, has sent out a three-page list of pig species that it has deemed "invasive" and targeted for destruction to eliminate the competition of small family-run farms. These swine varieties have been commercial farmed for centuries. They a re not feral. They are just not the variety raised en masse on feed lots. They are tame pigs, kept and fed behind fences. They are not roaming the countryside damaging crops, or "spreading disease" as has been falsely charged. One farmer whose business will be destroyed by this arbitrary and ambiguously worded edict (see his videos at http://youtu.be/843yH_0RMIA ) rightly suggests: should they be allowed to do this in Michigan, they will do it elsewhere. I would further suggest that should this work with pigs, the same twisted logic will be applied to eliminate non-big-Ag varieties of chicken, turkey, cattle, goats and sheep as "invasive" species that need to be destroyed. This is, as some have rightly reckoned, about taking control of the food supply and closing off all the exits to independent survival.

The farmers need to contact their local sheriffs

and demand they exercise their constitutional authority to prevent these raids from happening.

I agree. The sheriff needs to

I agree. The sheriff needs to grow a pair and deputize all the pig farmers. End of discussion.

I just posted this info

to the comment section of naturalnews.com.

It would only take a few well armed farmers contesting that

vote when the "thugs" arrive to end that peacefully.

"An armed society is a polite society."

Sometimes, thugs just don't respect anything but the barrel of a rifle or shotgun. It matters not if the thugs are paid out of the public treasury.

No one has to get hurt. That decision is up to the thugs.

Someone's been reading Taylor Caldwell it seems. The question is, "is there a Devil's Advocate somewhere responsible for this? Or is this simply the Devil himself?"

Our response should be the same regardless.

I'm sorry

My empathy for pigs is nil.

I just have a mental block about putting myself in their little shoes.

But let's please do call out that we agree that this is wrong, and should not be permitted.

I murder mice daily.

If a farmer fails to contain said pigs, and they wonder onto another property and start creating damage, the injured property owner is allowed to shoot the hog... I don't get why the government feels the need to get involved "preemptively"...

Shave the pigs!!

the four legged kind



You can't get clean in a dirty bathtub.

Against the law to possess

Against the law to possess one of them pigs in Michigan... thanks for the head's up!




What Happens...

...when some state decides they can slaughter men and women who have the wrong hair color? I wonder about the people involved in executing this order, who are they? The people should post no trespassing signs, violators will be shot. At some point, this has gone too far, and we either stand up and fight or we live on bended knees.

Time is now

Is this the straw?

This really is almost murder.

This really is almost murder. I have had two pet pigs. They are VERY smart. MUCH smarter than dogs and cats. You actually have to train them like you do a child. I swear they are as smart as a 4 year old kid. Once, I had a door the pig could nose open to come inside. It was a wood door and in the summer the flies came in so I had to teach the pig to close the door after it opened it. It took me 10 minutes to teach it this and it NEVER forgot, again.
It is bad enough we raise these for food, anyway. This is totally ridiculous. How can they DO this? We should not let them.


Let's call a spade a spade, shall we? (And yes, pigs are extremely intelligent animals, far more than most people give them credit for.)

I mean, if I got some free bacon out of the deal, then maybe...no, no it's still just fucking wrong. Sick and wrong.

To those who still think this is all going to go away by voting...think again!

Maybe they are...

practicing for the next "purge"

horrible news

Wouldn't use the word murder.

Senseless slaughter of private resources, and gross misuse of government power; yes.

Murder; no.

"Freedom Is A Road Seldom Traveled By The Multitude." - Frederick Douglass

Are you of the opinion

that it's only murder if a human life is needlessly taken?

While I believe that humans should place the life of another human above a 'lower' animal, murder is murder. Pigs are self-aware animals who understand the concept of death, just like primates.

The huge problem is the corruption of BigAg

In using government force to muscle out small farmers and reduce competition they have enabled government bureaucrats with money and power and influence. Short term advantages for special interests have been the bait which built such alliances and destroyed freedoms in this country.

Can we muster the 20% of activist-supporters needed to protect farm and food freedoms as discussed in this video? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=843yH_0RMIA

When do we get to

identify government as an invasive species?

Thank you

for making me smile with that.

But seriously...when do we?

They did this to buffalo, too. To control the food supply.

Then they rounded up the Indians and sent them to reservations.

This is the article that got my posting privileges revoked:

history repeats

once on the 'reservations' (FEMA camps) they were fed flour and salted pork from corporate suppliers.

"The state has said it will "destroy" these pigs beginning in April, potentially by raiding local farms with government-issued rifles, then shooting the pig herds while arresting the members of the family and charging them with the "crime" of raising pigs with the wrong hair color."

read it this way:

The state has said it will "destroy" these BABIES beginning in April, potentially by raiding local HOMES with government-issued rifles, then shooting the BABIES IN THEIR HOMES while arresting the members of the family and charging them with the "crime" of raising BABIES with the wrong hair color.

More smoke and mirrors

It would appear (to many of us) this has nothing to do with hog hair or invasive species (little green aliens?) but more about controlling independently produced and available food. There appears to be a concerted effort across this once great nation to shut down independently produced milk, home grown veggies, control farm animals, earth loving and food producing Amish and organic farmers, inhibit and outlaw resale of the above items, etc. The Duck Principle holds here: If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck then you do indeed have a duck even though 'they' have labeled it something else. This widespread and apparently coordinated program(s) reminds me of something I once read:

"But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism,..."

You are correct Dale

Living in a farm community and owning a small farm myself can attest to the validity of the above comment. Big AG have taken over chicken raising. The only market now is in a farmer's market which isn't enough to sustain life. All the reasons for not allowing the sale of eggs from free range chickens for 'health' reasons are in reality, the diseases running rampant in caged commercial chickens. The truth is, there is nothing more healthy then a chicken living in a nice coop, free ranging during the day on an organic farm. In fact, my happy, healthy chickens have names and are held like pets. The Organic/ Natural farmer is being pushed out in favor of big business by local Health departments. Chicken raisers, egg suppliers here have gone out of business from the gov. not allowing a market for the eggs. Government subsidized eggs production for big business along with....are you ready for this?...importing eggs from CHINA! "The family farm" is breathing it's last final gasps of air.
Big AGRA, Big Government win, the people lose.
