Christopher Lee Abbatoy, 28, of Bitely was arrested following the Saturday break-in at Valley View Pork Farm in Oceana County's Colfax Township. He was arraigned Monday on breaking and entering, larceny of livestock and malicious destruction of property charges.

The sheriff's department says workers arriving at the farm Saturday found an extensive amount of blood. They found the wounded sows and noticed a third missing.

The wounded sows were later euthanized.

People like you make me sick! What's wrong with you? A crime was committed and 3 pigs were murdered plus there's another lunatic in jail that we have to pay for.

Because your first two derogatory sentences towards a sarcastic, if not funny, post above could have been omitted, and there is no way you can 'murder' an animal- your 2 cents are basically worthless.

Yes it is a crime. And the guy should & will pay for his transgressions. There seems to be so much more meaningless crimes nowadays, maybe it was the video games we bought our kids.

We eat these animals, it is why they are raised. They most likely weren't anyone's pets. I love bacon, and pork BBQ is awesome. Pork rinds (mmmm). Ham is good on sandwiches, and all dogs loves pigs ears! Ham hocks, short ribs, pork roast...my mouth is salivating. Think I will go have a pork sandwich :)

Murdered, really? These animals are raised for slaughter so that you can have a ham sandwich. lighten up. Yes, a crime was committed but murder is defined as the unlawful killing of a human being by another human being with malice aforethought. In other words, only humans can be murdered and only humans can murder (because only we have the moral agency to allow us to be held accountable for unlawful homicides). Animals can certainly be abused.  They cannot be murdered.
