If Earle McEwen of North Gower didn’t feel badly enough when a blaze destroyed his barn along with 5,600 egg-laying hens last week, the Animal Defense League was right there to throw salt in the wound!
The Animal Right’s Group surreptitiously gained access to McEwen’s property after the fire, to capture gruesome video footage of the chicken’s charred remains.
Now how sick is that?
According to a SUN Media report:
On Friday a local group of animal rights activists stood at the edge of his property armed with signs reading “Birds Suffer and Die for Eggs you Buy” and the video footage.
Michele Thorn would not reveal who captured the video, but her group, the Ottawa Animal Defense League was not afraid to distribute the gruesome footage to media.
“It’s frustrating, it’s not any of their business,” McEwen said of the protesters.
Thorn stood in the rain carrying an R.I.P. sign and a “bloody” cross, arguing there’s no need to eat eggs or any other food that comes from animals.”
Earle McEwen lives with his wife and his elderly parents live on the same property.
What has this world come to when we put the rights of animals so far ahead of our human rights, that we feel it necessary to kick someone when they are already down.
This group makes me sick and I only wish someone would have caught them trespassing onto Mr McEwen’s property.
Can we now expect the Animal Defense League to bother the Joly family of Cumberland, who just lost 70 dairy cattle in a recent barn fire?
