Inexplicably, a Tennessee Farm Bureau Federation program in DeKalb County is again encouraging students and others to "gig" up to 15 frogs each as part of a fundraiser to benefit two graduating high school seniors. ("Gig" = stab small animals with fork)

"Gigging" is a form of hunting that involves stabbing small animals with pitchfork-like spears, causing the victims to endure slow, agonizing deaths from shock, organ failure, or blood loss.

Students and locals in DeKalb County, Tennessee, are being encouraged to "gig" up to 15 frogs each as part of a fundraiser to benefit two graduating high school seniors.

This sadistic event is scheduled for June 24, so the sooner you speak up, the better.

Tell the Tennessee Farm Bureau Federation and DeKalb County School District officials to cancel this cruel event immediately!


Thanks, Eleonora, for drawing my attention to this -
Institutional endorsement of cruelty to creatures is HORRIFYING

Thanks Evelyn for putting this horror story up, signed and noted!! And thanks to all those who signed.

Isn't this a "proper" way to educate children re compassion and empathy and respect for all lives?! Later they go on torturing and killing human beings and then we're all in shock! So disgusting and despicable!
