Volunteers Help Farm Animals

In today's edition of the "Good Stuff," 100 volunteers help Chicago-area animal control workers move horses, alpacas, goats and llamas from a local farm. CNN's Chris Cuomo reports.

Animal Control officials are removing the animals from what they call inhumane conditions discovered on a farm where there were several dead animals. Last week, the owner of the animals was arrested and faces animal cruelty charges.

Animal Control normally works with smaller animals, so it asked for help with trailers and people with experience with farm animals.

"We put this out last night at 9 o'clock and the next thing you know we had, I had 98 missed phone calls on my office line. I was getting phone calls all evening on my cell," Robert Sauceda, Kane County Animal Control, said.

The response to help has been overwhelming.

    So the animal rights advocate that poor should die without farming or live on welfare. How ridiculous it is? Human are worst in the rural India/Pak/Bangladesh where they have no enough food. and they work more than humans do. IN anyway every being have to work to survive, so why bulls and other animals can't work?

    Why military or police is using dogs? SHould be ban them?

    In addition, why these animal right don't try their stunts in USA or other advanced countries about harassing local govt when they insist on keeping town/city clean. In India they are harassing the local govt and encouraging or misguiding the pet owners on their right. That is hugely misleading the people who only know their 'right' but nothing about responsibilities of cleaning after their pet, keeping environment clean and so on…
