Arkansas: SB 14 Creates the criminal offense of “interference with a livestock or poultry operation,” including recording images or sounds at a facility, applying for a job at a facility with the purpose of recording image or sound, or making a false statement to gain entry to a facility with the purpose of recording image or sound:

Indiana: SB 373 and SB 391 SB 373 makes it a misdemeanor to enter any agricultural or industrial facility and take any sort of recording without the owner’s consent; SB 391 increases the penalties for property damage and trespass when they are committed on agricultural facilities; creates a registry of persons that have been convicted of any crimes concerning agricultural facilities or livestock operations; makes it a crime to make any recording of activities on an agricultural facility without the consent of an owner:

Nebraska: LB 204 Requires all evidence of abuse to be reported to the police within 24 hours of the activity:

New Hampshire: HB 110 Requires any recorded activity to be turned over to law enforcement within 24 hours

Wyoming: HB 126 Criminalizes any and all recording in agricultural operations without the consent of the owner; invokes criminal penalties for failure to report abuse; requires that any criminal conduct be reported to the facility owner—not the police!:

The bottom line is what do we expect from politicians who are in bed with big business? "Animals, you say, well I don't care about animals, as long as I get my big fat bribe and my big fat steak hey you vote for me I'll take care of you". To be a politician, you need to suffer from delusions of grandeur and some go a step further and become sociopathic like the big business people they get bribes from. Farm animal cruelty is disgusting and vile in every way. Respect for humans and animals should prevail, but big money is a corrupting influence much more powerful than empathy.

Noted, tweeted, tweeted, and shared. Couldn't sign because for once Missouri isn't at the head of line trying to destroy the environment or taking away the rights of women or animals. Knowing Missouri and the crazy GOP legislature, I have no doubts that I will get to sign a petition such as this one sometime in the next year or so.

Will take action! No doubt that big Ag is behind this especially in light of the criminal charges which were brought against numerous factory farming operations in the last year as a result of cameras exposing the truth about all of the horrible cruelty that goes on behind closed doors!
