Yankton Sioux protest against hog farm continues

The Yankton Sioux Tribe of South Dakota continues to protest a hog farm under construction in Charles Mix County.

The tribe won a tribal court order that bars Longview Farms of Iowa from the reservation. Protesters plan to block a Bureau of Indian Affairs road that is the only means of access to the hog farm site.

The owner of the hog farm wants to discuss it with the tribe. But tribal leaders say the operation will harm the environment and create health hazards.
