Hi To All!

 

Thanks to everyone for taking such an interest in the story about Hormel and the pig farm in Iowa. The response we got here on myspace and on the Care2.com network is incredible. We would like to ask everyone to continue this fight by contacting the Greene County Iowa's Senator, Congressman, and County Attorney's office to demand that these men are prosecuted. PETA is working hard to press charges against 18 individuals and knowing how difficult that can be we need to ensure that we have local officials hear how much we care… or we don't get the action we want. 

 

This entails calling, emailing or faxing. They need to hear how important this issue is to people in their community and beyond! All states worry about their image to the rest of the country; so just because we aren't in Iowa doesn't mean we are removed from these tragic issues for these animals.

 

Contact info is below if you can take a minute and reach out to one, two or all three! Please ask them to see that criminal charges are pressed against the employees involved in the abuse!

 

We called and we're listing our experiences with each office below:

 

Congressman Latham's office - 1421 South Bell Avenue Suite 108A, Ames, Iowa 50010
Phone: 515-232-2885
Fax: 515-232-2844

*They had no interest in what was going on and referred us to the Iowa Attorney General. Call them anyway so they can hear that they should have an interest!

 

Iowa Attorney General

Tom Miller

515.281.5164

*Spoke with Tom Miller. He said Greene County Attorney and Sheriff were handling it. Again, they too need to hear from us about the country-wide public outrage.

 

Greene Attorney County

Attorney

515.386.3474

Spoke with Nick Attorney Martino County

*Nick said they are investigating and “believes charges will be filed”. He is in the process of reviewing the PETA video. He is also interviewing people involved. He said it takes time and can't release any other information because it is an ongoing case. It's great for his office to hear from as many as possible that we are all watching what happens.

 

Senator Grassley
721 Federal Building
210 Walnut Street
Des Moines, IA
50309
(515) 288-1145
Fax: (515) 288-5097

http://grassley.senate.gov/iowa/des_moines.cfm

(we have not reached Senator Grassley, yet)

 

Please do what you can and have a great week!

thanks!

 SOO
