    I did a little more investigation and it turns out my computer was lying about already having the right drivers, so I managed to track them down and that fixed it!

    edit: of course, now the pressure sensitivity doesn't seem to be working :P

    TW: animal cruelty

    Who do I need to get ahold of to help some animals being neglected and abused? My job has a "petting farm" and instead of trained animal keepers they've stuck a bunch of untrained workers out there and the animals are literally dying

    Sorry, I can't find who to call and ASPCA seems like a no brainier but I don't know how to go about actually contacting them or if that's who needs contacted in the first place :(

    aspca has a report animal cruelty page, which for places outside of NYC seems to boil down to “contact your local shelter/animal control/police.” what kind of animals are at your job?

    Alpacas, goats, chickens, a donkey, and piglets

    The chickens are killing and eating each other, and all the animals only have access to water when someone is up there running it (9-11 and 5-7). They have little to no protection from the sun, and besides that minimum access to water and food are receiving no other care because the people working it simply don't know how to.

    damn, that is fucked up.

    aside from the shelter I might try googling rescue farms in your area. if you can't find any near you, I bet even ones further away would have advice on what to do in this situation and maybe local contacts or something.
