ABC Spotlights Undercover Farm Investigations

The major news network does an exposé on factory-farm probes and the ag-gag legislature that makes them illegal.

“Do you think we should have the right to see where our food comes from?” asks Bill Weir on ABC’s Nightline. It’s a question the animal-welfare community has considered for years, but with ag-gag bills pending in numerous states, it’s now a query the public must weigh in on. Nightline recently aired a special on undercover factory-farm investigations and the laws that aim to silence them. During the segment, one factory farm owner, who was subject to an investigation that revealed criminal animal-abuse, conceded that the footage did lead to positive changes. Other ag-gag advocates on the segment assert that undercover investigations only serve to enforce an alternate agenda “promoting a vegan lifestyle.”
