Under current Connecticut law, farmers are allowed to contain pigs and calves in cages so small that the animals can’t even turn around. Excessive confinement leads to severe distress and health problems for these animals. The state legislators must ban this cruel practice.

Signed, thanks Mamabear. I live in a very rural part of CT where there are many small, family owned farms, but I have never seen a big factory farm in my area. Many people here have a few sheep, cows, goats, and/or chickens...with plenty of room to move.
Thank You Mamabear. Signed and shared.
TY Mamabear signed.
Thank you Mamabear.
Signed. It is like an animal holocaust at these farms.
How true, Kate. It makes me feel like I cant breathe to see these prison crates for the animals. Old farm gal here and so in my early life I never knew about a factory farm at all, it floored me the first time I found out that they did that to animals!! I was asking then, "but, WHY?" Of course now I know it is about $$$ and the supposedly "easier" route for the farmer... but still dont see how that is so.... If they would take some of that energy that has to go into the constant feeding of hormones and antibiotics and new technology upgrades and put it into more humane farming practices, they would SAVE money or at least break even, that has BEEN PROVEN already by people who do it!! It should not be about $$$ but we know it is, so if we can use the fiscal to convince them to go more humane, then am all for it. Less Cruelty for financial reason is still less cruelty for our animal friends. I have read reports of animals that drop dead from the shock of "sunshine" once they are finally released from the prison crates and the dark unnatural life they have been forced to live since their birth. It is awful, a shame of shames upon the human race.
Two more signatures. Factory farming has got to stop.
