Investigation of Jackson Co. pig farm finds no violations

A pig-farming facility in Jackson County has been cleared of accusations made in an activist’s video.

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals released a video last month purportedly shot at East Fork Farms in Brownstown. The next day, an investigation by Indiana State Police was opened and a veterinarian along with investigators inspected the facility finding no violations. Further, parts of the video appeared to be staged and some scenes were shot at other locations.

An Indiana Board of Health veterinarian’s inspection also did not reveal any wrongdoing, although the vets did provide some suggestions for improvements.

After State Police finished their investigation, it was passed to Jackson County Prosecutor Jeff Chalfant who decided not to file any charges in the case.
