EVIDENCE GOES TO PROSECUTOR
Amberson Egg Farm Hen Rescue Update
YOUR CALLS/LETTERS/E-MAILS NEEDED
Pasado's Safe Haven has compiled extensive, legally obtained, videos,
photographs, necropsy reports and affidavits of the deplorable
conditions in which chickens had to live and die at Amberson Egg Farm
in Lake Stevens, Washington. We are presenting the evidence to the
Snohomish County Prosecuting Attorney's Office this week. Your
letters, phone calls, and e-mails are desperately needed NOW to
assure he knows how the community feels about this case. Specific
"talking" points follow to make this quicker and easier for you to
We rescued every last living chicken from the egg farm - 1000 in all,
many of whom still died once they were brought to Pasado's Safe Haven
because they were so emaciated...it is estimated 25,000 or more
chickens had already starved to death! Your correspondence is vital
to assure this never happens again in Washington State!
"TALKING POINTS" to the prosecutor:
For the newspaper editors
WRITE TO the Prosecutor:
- Let them know that this story is critical to continue to
investigate. That the community is outraged at what they saw in
photos and on television newscasts. That people care what happens!
- Note that necropsy results have shown extensive evidence that these
hens were starved to death. Pasado's Safe Haven asked for all Grown
in Washington Egg Farmers to open their doors, over a year ago, to
prove that Amberson's was a "unique" case. None did. Ask the
newspapers to practice good journalism and investigate if this is
"acceptable animal husbandry" at all of our Grown in Washington Egg
Farms. Egg farms need to be investigated not only for animal cruelty,
but for health and environmental issues, as well.
LET THE NEWSPAPER EDITORIAL DEPARTMENTS KNOW HOW
IMPORTANT THIS STORY
IS TO CONTINUE TO COVER!
