Florida Bill Could Help Factory Farms

SB 1246, filed by Sen. Jim Norman (R-Tampa), says that a person needs written consent of the owner before entering, photographing or recording at "a farm or other property where legitimate agriculture operations are being conducted." This bill puts a huge obstacle to undercover investigations, which have been critical in exposing the reality of factory farm cruelty. Mercy for Animals, a group which has conducted several undercover investigations that led to criminal charges and civil settlements, calls this bill "an underhanded attempt to silence animal advocates while keeping consumers in the dark about the harsh realities of modern animal agriculture."

Why does it seem that we are sometimes walking backwards in dealing with animal cruelty?

Hopefully, enough people will protest this bill so it doesn’t hold ground.
