Hog Vigil

Our good friends over at the Neuse River Foundation, along with a consortium of like minded groups, had an event this week that really caught the attention of the Legislature and local media.

They camped out at Halifax Mall in downtown Raleigh for 51 hours, utilizing a baby pool full of hog waste as well as a bunch of fake poop to help show the legislature what they live with on a day to day basis.

They're showing their support for a bill in the legislature this session that would outlaw new hog lagoons and provide money to help farmers convert to more environmentally friendly waste disposal systems.

You can get the full 'scoop' in this News&Observer story.
