This is a very important step towards improving the well-being of animals of the farm. If I only could, I would kick the asses of those who torture and mutilate poor cows or chicken. I hope the law will at least make them pay high fines.

The Anti-Cruelty Act, as I understand it, will also make it illegal to transport horses to Meiico and Canada for inhumane, butchering and slaughter of these noble animals. It is imperative that we pass the HR 6202 for ALL farm animals. As you know, Californians will go to the polls this November to vote YES on Prop 2, which makes it illega to keep pigs in gestation crates, calves in veal crates and chickens in battery cages. These are diplorable acts of cruelty and MUST BE STOPPED! If you live in California, please go to the polls on November 4th and VOTE YES ON PROP 2, FOR THE SAKE OF THE ANIMALS. Thank you
