Wyckoff, New Jersey – This month, a disrespectful group of teens trespassed on a farm in Wyckoff, New Jersey, and traumatized the animals living there. The disturbing incident happened at Abma’s Farm and the stupid and traumatizing antics were posted to Snapchat.
Jimmy Abma, who works on the farm, commented about the impact to the animals to the Daily Voice, stating:
“Our animals are very shaken and skittish compared to their normal calm and relaxed nature, and our mini horse has signs of physical abuse. The sheer disrespect that some people have is truly infuriating,” added. “There are teenage pranks, and then there’s something like this.”
The Wyckoff Police are investigating the situation. Anyone with information about this ongoing situation is asked to contact the Wyckoff Detective Bureau at 201-891-2121 or email@example.com
When all of the participating individuals have been identified, we want them to be appropriately punished for their actions! Please sign the petition and let your voice be heard.
The teens who trespassed on this farm left the animals shaken. They opened gates and rode miniature donkeys, which could not support their weight, reports the New York Post. One of the donkeys was smeared with lipstick and the hoodlums involved even attempted to steal things from the farm property.
These disrespectful “kids” need to be held accountable for their actions. Trespassing, stealing, and causing trauma and harm to innocent animals, is unacceptable. We want to let the Wyckoff Police know that people DO care about situations like this!
Together we must take a stand against acts of animal cruelty – turning a blind eye will never bring about change.
