Rhode Island May Ban Veal and Gestation Crates

After passing the House in a unanimous vote, the measure moved to the Senate for consideration on Tuesday.

Following a recent rise in animal-welfare legislation at the state level, Rhode Island may soon ban the use of confining livestock enclosures, the Associated Press reports. The proposed bill, a version of which passed the House in a unanimous vote earlier this month, would prohibit farms from using both veal crates and sow gestation crates—small housing systems that prevent animals from turning around or extending their limbs. Though Rhode Island’s livestock industry is small compared to other states, Rep. Patricia Serpa, who sponsored the legislation, believes establishing welfare laws will guarantee the humane treatment of local animals.
