Maggie wants to know.......Skunk hung on Foxley Farm sign by who?

Is this act of animal abuse, the result of a neighbor objecting to Foxley Farm expanding their agricultural business into full-time hog production in addition to crops, vegetables and beef cattle.  Three neighbors objected to farm-to-table weddings at Foxley Farm indicating that they would prefer agricultural production to weddings.  The objecting neighbors managed to obtain a court injunction to temporarily prevent weddings at the farm despite initial support from the Ligonier Township government for the farm project.  Foxley Farm contends the weddings, which are farm stay events, using locally sourced products bring much needed capital to the Ligonier business community while helping to provide the income to restore and preserve the agricultural heritage of Foxley Farm.  Foxley farm enjoys wide support for their project from the the majority of their neighbors, Ligonier residents, businesses and farming community.
