(NaturalNews) NaturalNews can now confirm that the Michigan Department of Natural Resources has, in total violation of the Fourth Amendment, conducted two armed raids on pig farmers in that state, one in Kalkaska County at Fife Lake and another in Cheboygan County. Staging raids involving six vehicles and ten armed men, DNA conducted unconstitutional, illegal and arguably criminal armed raids on these two farms with the intent of shooting all the farmers' pigs under a bizarre new "Invasive Species Order" (ISO) that has suddenly declared traditional livestock to be an invasive species.

Our government is so out of control lately......wth is going on?

The ISO also deems farmers who raise these pigs to be felons, and DNR officials were ready to make arrests on the scene and haul away these farmers to be prosecuted as hardened criminals.

"I think this is an unconstitutional order, these actions of the DNR are way out of bounds," attorney Joseph O'Leary told NaturalNews in an interview today. He is representing one of the farmers who was targeted in these raids. "To take what was six months ago an entirely legal activity, and suddenly people are felons over it. They're not growing drugs, running guns or killing anybody, they're raising animals pursuant to USDA regulations and state of Michigan regulations. They haven't done anything wrong here, and the DNR is treating them like they are hardened criminals."

Okay so I urge you to read the entire article and pass it on to everyone. This # needs to stop!!!!

I wonder if this has anything to do with Michigan's large Muslim community?

It's horrible that the farmer had to shoot his own pigs. It's very sad to see what this world is coming to. My prayers are with the farmers. RIP little pigs.

Who's the PIGs? ANYONE who would rather use govt as a weapon rather than "for the people".

Power Inflicting Government = PIG.

You guys and this story... c'mon really?

Have you even read the ruling rather than the "news" article? If you didn't here it is:

If the pigs were migrant Mexican workers that the fed was rounding up, whose side you on then?

As for the hogs in question, just use your brain and look into the truth w/o someone telling you what the truth is. Drudge and Alex aren't exactly great at telling truths as much as they are at telling their view of the truth.

Oh, I've been following this and it is just SO wrong.

I mean, I get the problem with the feral pigs, but man, I wish a feral pig would show up here. I keep a gun handy in case a deer does.

Free food as far as I'm concerned.
