Olalla Animal Confiscation

The Bailey family in Olalla, WA has their first hearing on January 3rd, 2011 at 8:30 PM in Port Orchard, WA. This will include the arraignment on the criminal charges (2nd degree cruelty) and a hearing on the Bailey's petition for the return of their animals.

You can find more information about the case and the hearing at the Justice for Pacific Northwest Farmers website:

The site also has information giving details about how people can help.

It's possible that this case could influence whether the new definitions of sufficent food and water in WA state law will be interpreted as requiring unlimited access to both food and water at all times. There are also concerns about violation of due process in this case.
