& # 39; I wish this lady was slaughtered instead & # 39 ;: Vile vegan trolls smashed pig farmer after she was forced to close her farm
- Bethany Paterson's pig farm in SA was forced to close due to drought
- The pig farm has been in her family for over 40 years
- After she announced the devastating closure on Facebook, vegans attacked her
A farmer is subjected to disgusting abuse of trolls after he announced that she was closing her pig farm because of the drought.
Bethany Paterson and her husband John Duka kept pigs and grew crops on their farm on the York peninsula in South Australia.
But they were forced to close the pig branch of their farm because the persistent drought in Australia has increased grain prices.
They also struggled because imported pork meant that they sold each pig at a loss.
Mrs. Paterson went to Facebook to explain the reason for the closure and to encourage people to buy Australian products.
But she was confronted with a barrage of mean abuse by militant vegans, with a woman who said she wanted Paterson to be slaughtered.

& # 39; Fortunately, times are changing and more people are waking up to cruelty, & # 39; wrote the woman.
& # 39; So wish this lady was slaughtered instead. Glad this is the last of the pigs you killed! No sympathy for you at all. What an ugly person you are inside and out! & # 39;
Another person wrote: & # 39; Maybe if your business wasn't built on murder, torture, slaughter, and rape, you wouldn't have a problem, & # 39;
& # 39; I have hidden about 100 comments, & # 39; said Mrs. Paterson ABC news.
& # 39; I had thought that during a difficult time, even if you have different values from someone else, you might be able to tune into the humanity of the situation, that someone is having a hard time and that times are difficult. & # 39;
In a long post, Mrs. Paterson wrote that the Australian pig industry had finally taken its toll.
& # 39; My parents have built this pigsty from the ground to a herd of 5,000 in the last 40 years, but the past 18 months have proven to be the breaking point.
& # 39; The drought has caused extremely high grain prices, and an oversupply of pork (from abroad) has created incredibly low pork prices, the combination of the two has meant that we have made a loss on every pig sold, and so has led to crippling and unsustainable losses, & she added.

She ended the post by asking her followers & # 39; conscious choices & # 39; to do when shopping for meat.
While the trolls shocked Mrs. Paterson, she was also overwhelmed by the outpouring of support she had received with great promise that they would buy their meat from local butchers.
About 75 percent of Australia's pork products come from abroad.
