Stop Cruel Chick Hatching at Ohio Public Library
Petition Urges Oberlin Public Library to End Cruelty
The Oberlin Public Library, which has hatched the chicks on site for the past two years to reportedly “educate” young learners about the life cycle, is now facing allegations that they instead are teaching — and promoting — animal cruelty.
“These chick hatching programs are cruel beyond words, cheap ‘entertainment’ under the guide of ‘education,’ with not a hint of compassion or consideration for the chicks’ best interests,” a concerned library goer wrote to LFT. “Is that what we want to teach our children? Lessons in inhumanity? There is no need to exploit or hurt any animal in the name of ‘education.’”
