Over 100 animal-rights activist protested outside the Farmer Johns chicken procession facility in Vernon Saturday to commemorate World Day for Farm Animals (pictured), officially observed on Oct.2. Saturday’s peaceful protest did not require any action by police, said Vernon Police Chief Danielle Calleros. However, the demonstration did cause the facility to remain on lockdown throughout the day, preventing some employees from going to work.
