A Week of Action for Animals on Factory Farms
Last year, PETA helped successfully defeat a series of “ag gag” bills, which would have made it a crime to film cruelty to animals on factory farms, in Florida, Minnesota, and New York. Now, another round of these unconstitutional bills has begun—in Missouri, New York, and Utah—and it’s up to us to squelch these measures again.
Time and time again, PETA’s undercover investigations of factory farms have produced video evidence of cruelty to animals that has helped authorities prosecute the offenders. Investigators have documented that workers slammed newborn piglets’ heads into concrete floors and left them to die in agony, employees at a foie gras farm drowned female hatchlings, and workers at a turkey farm jumped on turkeys’ stomachs to make them “pop.”
Don’t let factory farms hide animal abuse behind shady laws. Here are three ways that you can help animals on factory farms this week:
- No matter where you live, you can urge Utah Gov. Gary Herbert to veto his state’s “ag gag” bill.
- For five days, PETA will send out one text message a day with important information about factory farms. Please subscribe to receive these text messages, and forward them to your contacts. In the U.S., text the word FARM to 73822. In Canada, text the word FARM to 99099.*
- Consider making a donation to PETA’s campaign to help the billions of animals who are suffering on factory farms.
