Dear Vinnie,

It's a gag order.

Over the years, our undercover investigations have exposed shocking animal cruelty on factory farms -- and have helped win much-needed reforms.

You might remember, for example, our investigation into shocking abuse of downed cows at a slaughter plant in California, which led to cruelty convictions, new federal reforms, the largest meat recall in U.S. history, and the shut-down of the number-two supplier of ground beef to the National School Lunch Program.

But instead of correcting their illegal and unethical activities, agribusiness has been pushing anti-whistleblower bills -- "ag-gag" bills -- to prevent you from finding out about them. Please don't let ag-gag bills hide animal abuse from the public»

Ag-gag bills seek to criminalize whistleblowing on factory farms -- essentially making it a crime to conduct undercover investigations -- and they've been cropping up state to state.

This year, ag-gag bills have been proposed in 11 states. So, 11 times we have mobilized -- meeting with lawmakers and getting word out to the public -- and all 11 bills have been blocked. But they are sure to come back next year, and we need to be ready.

Help us stay on the offensive and continue pulling back the curtain on animal abuse -- pledge to stand against these dangerous ag-gag bills»

I have shared this story on Facebook.  I know that here in Wyoming I fight all the time with the government to stop the AG-GAG policy.  There are so many cases of cruelty here and it hardly ever makes the news but being in small town USA these 'farm' hands like to talk about their abuse and it gets out ever so slowly.  It shocks and sickens me and I don't understand WHY it is even allowed to happen in the first place.  I agree wholeheartedly that if there was NOTHING to hide then there would not be a problem with people knowing and seeing what is happening there.  Thanks for posting this, for keeping the information out there and for all the hard work you do!

Darn it, I just lost a whole comment. O.k. signed also in my Horse group from Horse Pro. I was just going to post a Bud commercial in my Horse group about Clydesdale horses.  It's really funny and cute.  Kelly what happened to my Baby Donkey picture?  I lost a lot of photos but I thought it was in this thread ?  Also I asked my friend Dianne Lynn to Post a Candle thread here for Penny since you're the one who let me know and in "Watersheds" and  "Foxy Friends" if she could. I already let folks know in the Frog and Horse groups.  But anyone can light one for whomever or animals. xo
