Aerial Photos Document Massive Flooding of 36 Factory Farms


Hurricane Matthew's rampage through North Carolina's coastal plain flooded more than 140 feces-strewn swine and poultry barns, more than a dozen open pits brimming with hog waste and thousands of acres of manure-saturated fields, an analysis by the Environmental Working Group (EWG) and Waterkeeper Alliance reveals.

Looking at the pictures, one can plainly see and wonder why the hog Industries were ever allowed to develop and expand in such a flood plain area.
Could this happen in Manitoba? It already has!
The Red River area and the Interlake are perfect examples where barns were allowed .
So...Who's looking after the environment and our water ? Lake Winnipeg has the answer….Nobody…!.
It's Pigs….Politics.,,,,Poop…..and Profit , nothing else matters and government could care less.
