CA Court Rules in Favor of Animal-Welfare Bill

The agriculture industry has failed for a third time to block a voter-approved 2008 law that improves the lives of farm animals.

California’s Proposition 2 bill went into effect in 2008 after receiving a 68 percent of the votes on a California ballot initiative. The law, which prohibits factory farms from keeping pigs, hens, and veal calves in cages that are so confining that they prevent the animals from turning around or stretching their limbs, has been challenged in court three times. Once again, these legal protests were dismissed when the Superior Court in California found that the ag-industry’s claim that the Proposition 2 laws were unclear, was not valid. “The opponents of Proposition 2 have had their day in court, three times now,” said a Humane Society of the United States representative, “and it’s time to get on with the process of transitioning egg operations to meet the needs of animals and the will of California voters.”
