Food for Thought

Posted By on Thu, Oct 16, 2008 at 6:41 PM

It only took more than one hundred years after the birth of industrial agriculture, but Americans are startin’ to get around to that whole "humane" thing.

The same year Louisiana finally bans cockfighting, California voters will decide on Proposition 2, which will essentially "ban the cruel confinement of hens in battery cages, pigs in gestation crates and calves in veal crates" throughout the state, according to the Humane Society.

And in Massachusetts, voters will decide whether to ban greyhound racing.

Something to think about while you’re perusing the Bywater Bark Market and Delgado’s Animal Health Fair this weekend.
