最新消息:华盛顿州长签署历史性的法律来结束蛋鸡笼约束

By May 7, 2019 with3 Comments

Washington Gov. Jay Inslee has just signed into law the strongest protections for egg-laying hens ever passed in any state legislature. This historic win will benefit approximately eight million hens each year, freeing them from cage confinement by the end of 2023. The measure builds upon our previous work in states likeCaliforniaMassachusetts选民通过转型选票m在哪里easures against the cage confinement of farm animals in recent years.

华盛顿的新法律逐步淘汰无论在蛋的生产制作和笼养母鸡销售鸡蛋。

In a typical cage facility, each bird has less space than the dimensions of an iPad on which to live her entire life. While cage-free does not equal cruelty-free, this measure will significantly reduce the birds’ suffering. In addition to banning cages and requiring more space per bird, the law also mandates that hens be provided with vital enrichments, including scratch areas, perches, nesting and dust bathing areas.

The HSUShas spearheaded the passage of this law and others in a dozen states — from Florida to Ohio to Arizona — to eliminate extreme confinement. These successes bolster the work we have done with some of the最大的食品公司in recent years, both in the United States and全球范围内,通过他们的供应商结束残酷的笼子限制的做法。其结果是,国会议员和企业越来越多地意识到,未来是笼免费。

In Washington, we partnered with Democratic and Republican legislators, key stakeholders in the agricultural sector, and other leading animal protection groups to ensure the bill’s success. It is a remarkable illustration of how good people in all walks of life can come together to create lasting and transformational change for animals. The HSUS will continue to work with lawmakers, non-government organizations, volunteers, donors and other members of the public to continue paving the way toward this more humane reality.

让我们花点时间来庆祝今天的动物显着的胜利。但是,让我们也记住了数十亿农场动物的世界各地仍然在残酷的笼子里痛苦。在华盛顿州,加利福尼亚州和马萨诸塞州的法律为其他国家和国家效仿,改革农场动物是如何提出的进一步支持企业的政策承诺一个伟大的先例。让我们保持这种势头,我们对白天工作时,没有农场动物关在笼子里。

    Thank goodness. Horrible factory CAFO’S. Horrible for Henson, horrible for neighbors. We can only hope judges will begin to stand against the farm bill and protect people who are forced to live next to one of these commercial operations, when they move in. They dont care who’s lives they impact. They just tell us it’s the law, so what.

    I buy Vital Farms alfresco eggs, from pasture raised hens. I hope they are true to their word! We willingly pay more believing the hens are cared for humanely with kindness.
