Last
year, PETA helped successfully defeat a series of “ag gag” bills, which would have made
it a crime to film cruelty
to animals on factory farms, in Florida, Minnesota,
and New York. Now, another round of these unconstitutional bills has begun—in Missouri, New York, and Utah—and it’s up to us to
squelch these measures again.

Time
and time again, PETA’s undercover investigations of factory farms have produced
video evidence of cruelty to animals that has helped authorities prosecute the
offenders. Investigators have documented that workers slammed newborn piglets’ heads into concrete
floors
and left them to die in
agony, employees at a foie gras farm drowned female hatchlings, and workers at a turkey
farm jumped on turkeys’
stomachs
to make them “pop.”

Don’t
let factory farms hide animal abuse behind shady laws. Here are three ways that
you can help animals on factory farms this week:

  • No
    matter where you live, you can urge Utah Gov. Gary Herbert to veto his state’s “ag
    gag” bill.
  • For
    five days, PETA will send out one text message a day with important information
    about factory farms. Please subscribe to receive these text messages, and
    forward them to your contacts. In the U.S., text the word FARM to 73822. In Canada, text the word FARM to 99099.*
  • Consider
    making a donation
    to PETA’s campaign to help the billions of animals who are suffering on factory
    farms.
