I personally called @cityofnorthlasvegas on this issue not that long ago after I drove past the park to see MANY ducks with an empty pond. I didn't feel this was a very pressing issue on their hands but hoped their reasons held up and they could be accountable. I was told the pond needed maintenance and would be filled again but unsure of the date. I was told the ducks were being taken care of and given water and food. I also got the vibe that my concerns were a little overactive. Now this....they still have no water and are being taken care of(as much as possible) by locals. ~
This meet up was for tonight(Sunday evening) and I was just made aware. Waiting to hear on the current situation to see if the ducks still need help from our community to be relocated.
I'm disappointed the city has left this for months when lives are dependent on the urgency of this issue. Us locals in #lasvegas know what the extreme heat can do. It's also a park for the locals as well, they deserve to have a place for children and family to enjoy....very disappointing and sad @cityofnorthlasvegas ~
I'll update as soon as I hear more. Thanks to the ones who tried setting something up. I hope you were successful with some or all. #savelives#northlasvegas#parks#ducks#cityofnorthlasvegas

We find the exploitation of sentient beings newsworthy. 🌱 @ktnv @fox5vegas @reviewjournal. Thank you for representing our animal family @veganhunnywanderlust.

There comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but he must take it because conscience tells him it is right.

From this corner I can see a strip club, the Rio, the Wynn, and the empty delivery truck outside the chicken Slaughterhouse we've been bearing witness at since January. •••
The bad news - They totally shook up their delivery today meaning, by the time the truck usually gets there, it was nearly entirely unloaded. We, as individuals, dedicate our time to be there - for the chickens, roosters, and ducks - to tell their unheard stories and truths to all of you - and they deliberately tried to take that away from us. Where is the transparency? Are they ashamed?
We delivered our respects to the victims the best we could then fought the good fight w/ some peaceful protesting along the street and sidewalk chalking.
The good news - our presence and dedication to the these animals is clearly shaking up this business. The Slaughterhouse owners as well as their suppliers @maryschicken of Pitman Family Farms have been lying about their birds and previous bear witness photos prove it.
They are rearranging things and it's costing them money and it's causing them frustration. •••
If the deliveries are now at 5am - guess I'll be setting my alarm a bit earlier.
It's not about me - it's about the animals. 🐓🐓🐓🐓🐓
Thank you to all those who bear witness and the organizers :: your dedication is appreciated ❤️

Empty cages, because someone is hiding something. When a company like @maryschicken, the distributor to Highland and Charleston Poultry in Las Vegas in addition to @wholefoods and @naturalgrocers here starts changing their delivery schedule because they don’t want people to see the animals they send to their deaths nine hours away in a desert, how can that not raise a red flag, sincerely? Because that’s what happened yesterday at our vigil @lasvegasanimalsave.
Mary Pitman of Mary’s Chicken’s and her family started with a family farm in 1954, “good Mormons” letting the animals they “lovingly raise” live lives filled with “compassion” until they are “humanely slaughtered.” From chickens arriving underweight or already dead, deprived of food and water for hundreds of miles across state lines, we understand why you don’t want us to see them @maryschicken. From chickens arriving with their beaks cut, a practice you specifically say you don’t do on your website, we understand why you don’t want us to see them.
We understand that with social media, the exposure of your crimes against these innocent animals is not good for business.
I want you to know that you will not hide their suffering from us.
I want you to know that you will not stop us from being there for them.
And I want you to know that if you truly cared about these animals, you wouldn’t damn them to their deaths and lie about how much you “love” them, you would simply love them. What is love to you?
