Some good news in animal laws-post election

From the Humane Society of the United States

In California, voters have approved Proposition 12, a historic measure that will improve the lives of tens of millions of farm animals by prohibiting cruel cage confinement of egg-laying hens, pigs used for breeding, and calves raised for veal in small cages that immobilize them their entire lives.


The race is over, and the greyhounds have won! Within just over an hour of the polls closing in Florida, we know the outcome; Amendment 13 has passed. Floridians – like countless millions of Americans – want nothing to do with the sordid enterprise of greyhound racing.

Nine states still allow greyhound racing, but Florida was its last remaining stronghold in the United States, with 11 of the 17 racetracks in the country.
