Michigan government unleashes armed raids on small pig farmers
by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger
NaturalNews can now confirm that the Michigan Department of Natural
Resources has, in total violation of the Fourth Amendment, conducted two
armed raids on pig farmers in that state, one in Kalkaska County at
Fife Lake and another in Cheboygan County. Staging raids involving six
vehicles and ten armed men, DNA conducted unconstitutional, illegal and
arguably criminal armed raids on these two farms with the intent of
shooting all the farmers' pigs under a bizarre new "Invasive Species
Order" (ISO) that has suddenly declared traditional livestock to be an
The ISO also deems farmers who raise these pigs to be felons, and
DNR officials were ready to make arrests on the scene and haul away
these farmers to be prosecuted as hardened criminals.
Farmer forced to shoot his own baby piglets in cold blood
"I think this is an unconstitutional order, these actions of the DNR
are way out of bounds," attorney Joseph O'Leary told NaturalNews in an
interview today. He is representing one of the farmers who was targeted
in these raids. "To take what was six months ago an entirely legal
activity, and suddenly people are felons over it. They're not growing
drugs, running guns or killing anybody, they're raising animals pursuant
to USDA regulations and state of Michigan regulations. They haven't
done anything wrong here, and the DNR is treating them like they are
In anticipation of the DNR arriving on the scene, one farmer engaged
in what can only be described as a heart-wrenching task of shooting his
own pigs, one by one, including baby piglets before the DNR arrived.
This was to avoid being arrested as a felon. His livelihood is now
completely destroyed, as the state of Michigan has put him out of
business. Even after this farmer informed the DNR that he had destroyed
his entire herd of pigs, the DNR continued to illegally acquire a search
warrant by providing false information to a court Judge, then
conducting an armed raid on his ranch to verify that the entire herd of
pigs had indeed already been shot to death. That this took place
satisfied the DNR, which is now showing itself to be engaged in the
mob-style destruction of targeted farming businesses through its
mass-murder agenda of Michigan's small-scale farm pigs.
