* Ambiguously used in Aldous Huxley's Literature/BraveNewWorld when Bernard and Helmholtz take John to Mustapha Mond, after John talks to Mond, Bernard and Helmholtz also talk to Mond about dissatisfied they are being outcasts in London. Mond tells them that they are a threat and must be sent to an island where other free thinkers are. However we never hear about these free thinkers, and John isn't allowed to go with them despite his pleas. It's entirely possible Bernard and Helmholtz were killed instead.
** On the other hand, Mond says that he himself was once offered the choice of either an island or a government post (certainly the government posting existed), and he talks openly about being glad there are so many islands to send free thinkers to, because otherwise they'd have to be killed. The fact that he brings it up as a possibility, paradoxically, means that Bernard and Helmholtz are probably safe.

* In the ''Literature/DiaryOfAWimpyKid'' book "Dog Days", the Heffleys are celebrating Father's Day by going to brunch with Grandpa Heffley. Frank (Greg's dad) asks why Greg seems so sad and he replies he's "bummed out" because his fish died. Frank says that he never had a pet die so he can't empathise but he did once have a dog named Nutty who ran away to a butterfly farm. Grandpa then says that Nutty didn't really run away to a butterfly farm but got run over, which makes Frank ''mad''.

** From 1943 onward the remaining major camp which handled exterminations, the dual-purpose Work/Extermination complex of Auschwitz-Birkenau, handled the entire process of determining who was Fit for war work and who was Unfit and going to be 'deported' somewhere else - after a quick shower.
*** Apparently all this has caused problems as Holocaust survivors age. If you're going senile but still remember the camps, having a chirpy 20-something nurse announce that [[InnocentlyInsensitive it's time for you to have a shower]] is [[{{Trigger}} Not Good]].

* One of the official excuses of the military junta that ruled Argentina from 1976-1983 concerning the fate of the hundreds (and eventually thousands) of people who were 'disappeared' by the Armed Forces was that they had simply gone into exile abroad.
** Many officers, confessed to selecting people for "transfer" out of the secret prisons. Officers told remaining "disappeared" prisoners that the former inmates were "transfered" somewhere else. In reality, the "transfered" were summarily executed then buried in mass graves or incinerated. Others were drugged, tied to metal weights, put on cargo planes, and thrown overboard above the Atlantic Ocean.

* Creator/DaveBarry once wrote about how his daughter Sophie took in a bug from the porch which she named "Melvin". Melvin of course quickly died and he and his wife, instead of explaining this to her, kept replacing it with a new "Melvin" from the porch (there were a lot of those kinds of bugs apparently). The same column detailed his attempts to buy a pet fish for Sophie which he said had to "look like other fish in case - God forbid - we have to Melvinize it".

* Played with in the'''{{Jessie}}''' episode "101 Lizards". Ravi decides to send away Mrs. Kibblings' 12 baby lizards after seeing how they are too much to handle. He gives them to a young woman named Cassandra, who was revealed to be Mrs. Chesterfield's daughter. He and Jessie are then led to believe that Mrs. Chesterfield is planning on slaughtering the lizards and making them into clothing. Ironically enough, Mrs. Chesterfield actually did send the lizards to live in a farm upstate by opening a lizard sanctuary.

* Parodied in ''{{Blackadder}} II'', where Kate believes that this is why her father keeps telling her that her mother isn't dead, but ran off to Droitwich with her Uncle Henry. Since this is hardly a comforting story, and her father is very exasperated with having to repeat it all the time, it would appear to be the truth.

* ''Series/{{Monk}} plays with the "pet went to the farm" version by having Monk give the farm story to the ''dog'', saying that her human owner (the VictimOfTheWeek) had to move to a farm.

* The ''Series/DoctorWho'' episode "Turn Left" features a ForWantOfANail AlternateTimeline where Donna never met (and saved the life of the Doctor), which leads to London being nuked, the country full of homeless refugees, France's borders closed and the USA's financial aid cancelled due to the Adipose disaster. Finally, the British government starts rounding up immigrants and putting them in "work camps". Wilfred, a WorldWarII veteran, immediately realises what's ''really'' going on.

* On one episode of ''Series/{{QI}}'', the Soviet practice of training dogs to go under tanks with bombs in WorldWarII was raised at one point. A photo of a dog running towards a tank with what appeared to be a bomb strapped to it's back popped up, and at the audience's reaction Phil Jupitus was quick to (jokingly) reassure them that that ''specific'' dog was okay, he was on a farm now, and he was very happy.
