PIG VIGIL DETAILS

ADDRESS: Farmer John Slaughterhouse 3049 E Vernon Ave, Vernon, CA 90058

PARKING (See map below): There is parking on 44th and 46th Ave which are the next streets south of Vernon Ave. Green curbs are safe to park at. Park and walk to Vernon & Soto and walk so that Farmer John is on your left.

Wear light colored clothing for safety. 

WHAT TO BRING (optional): Bring your phone, water sprayer, or reusable water bottle. You may consider wearing a hoodie or raincoat to protect yourself from water spray from people watering pigs on the top level of the trucks.

If you want to bring water, please only bring 1 gallon bottles or larger as we are trying to avoid one-use plastic. Please take it home with you at the end of the night if it doesn't get used.

For those interested, purchase your own water sprayer and be sure to use a Sharpie to write your name on it: Small Sprayer and Large Sprayer.

We do not want to stress the pigs. Please follow these instructions:

Approach the pigs slowly, calmly, and always with a soft, gentle voice. Positive words only.

DO NOT PET THEM LIKE DOGS. They do not know what kindness feels like.

Please do not pour your sadness onto the pigs. Give them only love and strength. Wait to shed tears for when the trucks take them away.

Please do not bring your dog if they bark.

FOR GIVING WATER:

Only spray/pour water if there is a SNOUT near you.

DO NOT spray/pour water on their bodies, nor into areas you cannot see.

If pigs begin to do a stampede, BACK AWAY IMMEDIATELY until they’re done. Stampedes can be caused by anything.

Do not shine lights into the pigs’ eyes. Direct your flashlights/camera lights at the ceiling of the truck only. Do not use flash.

Giving water to any/all available pigs is the FIRST priority. Photos and videos are second. Work with a buddy if possible.

Please be extra careful when using sprayers to get to the pigs in the top layer. People have expensive cameras and equipment below you. Test your sprayer beforehand so that it is a stream and not a misty spray.

*****************************************************

Wait until the trucks come to a complete stop before approaching.

Do not climb on the trucks.

Do not drop anything inside the trucks.

Stay on the sidewalk side of the trucks, do not go behind nor in front of the trucks, nor on the side of oncoming traffic.

Listen to the Vernon Police Officers when they say to return to the sidewalk.
