    The AG-Gag Bill In Indiana

    Looks like this bad bill will pass & become law in Indiana. It will protect all Puppy Mill owners & Factory Farms in the state. Animal activist will be
    barred from exposing animal cruelty & neglect anywhere in the state. With a majority in the Legislature & a Republican Governor, Indiana opens the
    door for animal abuse without consequence here in good old Indiana.

    I bet the animal groups and protesters will continue to act. The government is idiotic.

    Awful, and heartbreaking.

    If they can sneak into pharma labs, which are really tight, they aren't going to be fazed by this bad law.

    I hope you are right about this. Indiana is not the only state when this law is being pushed right now.

    This is @*^!&)# (insert your own expletives) What are these idiots thinking? Right, they're not. Is there a petition we can sign or someone we can write to about this? Could the fine people of Indiana, and they're in the majority I'm sure, move the governor's mansion to a factory farm so he can live in a crate with the caged chickens?

    Factory Farms are one of the worst things to happen to American Agriculture, sadly. Both for small family farms..and the animals.

    This ("Ag-Gag") made the front page of the New York Times today (Sun., 4/7):

    Signed!!! I did a lot of my growing up on my uncle's dairy farm upstate New York. My cousins loved having the "city kid" around to help out with the work that needed to be done, this city kid thought it was a lot of fun. There was no abuse or mistreatment of any animal there. My uncle wouldn't stand for it! The cows spent most of the day out in the pasture grazing and free to move around as they wanted to. Newborn calves were treated gently and with care but we never interfered with the babies' time with their mothers. The vet came by on a regular basis to check on the farm animals and give treatment or advice as needed. Even though my uncle made his living from the farm, it was a family thing. This is what farming is supposed to be.

    Agra-business isn't what I remember growing up. Unfortunately, the family farm has been negatively impacted as a result. Why are these agra businesses trying so hard to cover up their abuse, neglect, and deplorable conditions? We, as consumers of farm products, have every right to know where these goods are coming from as well as the conditions under which they are being produced.

    Why??? Because they can and also get away with it. And they don't really have to try all that hard either. Afterall, so many of the governing powers just turn a blind eye to it anyway. I'm sure that they can justify themselves by saying - "Big deal - what's the difference - they're just animals with no feelings that are going to be killed so that they can be eaten anyway!!! So why do they need to be treated humanely??" Yup - there's the disgusting explanation.......

    ETA:
    BTW Eileen - kudos to your uncle and all of those like him, for his ethical method of farming. We can only hope that there are still a lot more like him out there among all of the money-grubbing enterprises that call themselves "farmers".

    When the "animal rights" groups have been caught on a number of occasions creating the taped evidence, they're begging legislatures to pass bills like this.

    Beware the law of unintended consequences.

    Bull S*** Name any examples of false evidence. Agriculture is big business & producting product is all they think of. The "product" is living, breathing animals who
    deserve humane treatment.
