ROBINSON CORRECTIONAL INSTITUTION: FYI, inmates—the woodchucks that frolic outside your cells will be exterminated this weekend.
INMATES: But those woodchucks are the only things that bring us joy in our lives.
ROBINSON CORRECTIONAL INSTITUTION: No need to worry—the animals will die within a few days once our steel jaw traps latch onto their limbs. Then you won’t have anything to distract you from contemplating your joyless existence.
Fortunately, this isn’t over yet. Some correctional officers at Robinson contacted us to ask if there was anything we could do, and we’re going to fight this one to the bitter end. We do need your help though—so if you could take a few moments to read more about the issue and contact the prison about their complete disregard for human and animal misery, some woodchucks in Connecticut would be very grateful indeed: You can click here to take action.
The story was covered in the Connecticut Journal-Inquirer, and you can read that here.
