Massachusetts Curbing Cruelty

Massachusetts representatives introduce a bipartisan bill requiring that farm animals have enough room to move freely.

A new bill, introduced by Rep. Jason M. Lewis and Minority Whip Sen. Robert L. Hedlund, would require that veal crates for calves, battery cages for egg-laying hens, and gestation crates for breeding pigs be large enough for the animals to freely move. Farm Sanctuary has announced its support for the Massachusetts Prevention of Farm Animal Cruelty Act, stating that “confining animals in cages so small they can barely move is inhumane and it is not aligned with the values of the compassionate people of Massachusetts.” Seven states have already passed laws to ban one or more of these factory-farm abuses, and others are introducing initiatives for upcoming elections.
