Hog farm opposition signs painted with obscenitiesMarch 2, 2020
By The Associated Press
DENVER — A dispute over a large hog farm in northern Indiana is getting nasty.
Yard signs opposing the Miami County farm were removed and then returned with obscenities painted on them, the Kokomo Tribune reported.
“The fact of the matter is we just don’t know who did it yet,” Sheriff Tim Hunter said. “It could have been an adult or it could have been kids who did it. We aren’t really sure yet.”
The farm in Denver will house more than 4,600 animals and create a lot of manure in the town located some 70 miles (112 kilometers) north of Indianapolis, the newspaper reported.
Sherri Gasaway, who lives nearby, is leading a lawsuit against the project. She and about 30 other residents have formed an opposition group.
“I don’t know if they’re trying to intimidate us or what, but we’re in this for the long haul. We have a neighborhood out here with 18 homes that this CAFO is going to impact," Gasaway said, referring to the hog farm, a confined animal feeding operation.
A hearing at the Indiana Office of Environmental Adjudication is set for March 18.
