Activism to Help Hens

A New Zealand vegan is spending 30 days in a small cage to protest a new proposal on cages for egg-laying hens.

Carl Scott of New Zealand is spending the month of April in a 6.25-by-4.25-foot cage in order to protest against a government proposal that would require farmers to extend battery cages by only a few inches. The new “enriched” cages are still, however, deemed cruel and banned in several European countries. Currently set up across from one of New Zealand’s largest egg producers, Scott is bringing awareness to the issue by talking to passersby and through a frequently updated Facebook page. “I am OK, but it is really starting to sink in how long a month actually is. It must be so hard for the birds to have to live there 24/7 for up to 18 months!” Scott writes.
