City of Erie Bans Farmed Animals in City Limits

October 2002

After receiving numerous complaints about farmed animals being kept in filthy, cramped conditions in Erie, Pennsylvania, PETA contacted city officials about a proposed ordinance that would ban farmed animals within city limits. We asked members in the area to write letters and voice their opinion at city council meetings. The tremendous response helped to score a victory for Erie’s farmed animals.
