Ban on Animal Filming

The Iowa House and Senate are considering a bill making recording farm animals illegal.

In a move similar to Florida’s lawmakers’ earlier this month, Iowa’s agriculture committees have pushed a bill into the House and Senate that would make undercover recordings of the industry illegal. People who take agriculture jobs only to gain access for recording, in a similar manner as Mercy For Animal’s recent Farm to Fridge film, would be punished with up to five years of prison and $7,500 in fines. “What’s needed is reform of these factory farms that will prevent cruelty to animals. What’s not needed its to make factory farming cruelties more secretive,” comments Paul Shapiro, a senior director at the Humane Society of the United States.
