They say, “As Maine goes, so goes the nation.”.
With that in mind, have you heard the news out of Maine? It’s the sixth state to pass legislation significantly changing rights for state residents.
That’s right. As of January 1, 2011, calves will no longer be immobilized in tiny stalls for the production of veal, nor will mother pigs be trapped in gestation crates, on factory farms in Maine. Woo hoo!
Maine’s state motto is “Dirigo,” which means, “I lead.” When it comes to protecting animals, that certainly seems to be true!
