A faction of law makers in Arizona are attempting to include farm animals in an agriculture bill, which would effectively reduce the protection they receive under the animal-cruelty legislation they are included in. But a Mason-Dixon poll taken last February shows that a majority of Arizona citizens oppose this new legislation, and want cows, chickens, and pigs to be offered the same lawful protection as canines. According to the survey, 87 percent of voters do not want weaker cruelty laws for farm animals, and every subgroup that was polled, including Republicans and rural voters, also showed that they did not wish farm animals to receive less protection.
