WESTPORT, Mass. (WLNE) – A Westport community is holding a Day of Remembrance Monday to honor the animals who died at a squalid tenant farm last year.

Last month the town’s selectmen agreed to make July 24th an annual Day of Remembrance.

Mirrors have been placed in some trees in the area commemorating all 1,400 animals found dead or dying on the farm.

A service will be held outside of the Town Hall being at 5 p.m. Monday.
