This Sunday, the Laton Lions Club has reportedly scheduled a “Barnyard Scramble” event, during which terrified baby bunnies, piglets, calves, lambs, and chicks will be released into an arena and frantically chased by children.
These frightened baby animals will have no opportunity to escape or defend themselves. To make matters worse, the animals used in the event will be sent home as prizes.
Of the countless animals who are “won” every year in such events, many die within weeks from neglect or are bounced around from home to home because families are usually unprepared for the huge responsibility of taking care of their “prizes.”
Contact the Laton Lions Club and urge the organization to cancel this cruel event! Submit a copy of your e-mail for 350 Street Team points.
