Group lists animals rescued at NY game farm auction

‘Louise the warthog’ among those headed for safety

CATSKILL, Oct. 26
By KATHY BARRANS

A coalition of animal advocates has released a list of 200 animals from the Catskill Game Farm that it claims have been saved from exploitation, slaughter or canned hunts.

“Louise the warthog” is on that list. The group says she was the most expensive animal sold at the auction, going for $9,000.

A European boar and llamas are also among those now headed to sanctuaries.

The animals were auctioned off last week after the game farm closed earlier this month.
