Fed Up Hog Farm Neighbors File Suit in NC

January 7th, 2015 | by Becky Striepe

Imagine if you couldn't send your kids out to play in the back yard or throw open the windows on a lovely spring day because of a ubiquitous, sickening smell. That's the reality for someone living near an industrial hog farm. A group of North Carolinians are sick of the stench, and they're suing to get it under control.
