突发新闻:密歇根州通过了母鸡的法律结尾笼;第一个中西部国家这样做

By November 21, 2019 with8 Comments

时刻前,密歇根州通过了法律禁止鸡在残酷的笼子里的鸡鸡蛋生产和销售。这是我们工作中的一个显着和历史的时刻,以结束农场动物的笼子。Michigan is a major Midwestern agriculture state — and one of our nation’s largest egg-producing states — and the fact that it is saying “no” to cages for egg-laying hens shows just how rapidly American views on the treatment of farm animals are evolving.

用于鸡蛋的鸡是地球上最滥用的动物之一。它们通常锁定在贫瘠的围栏中,并且每只鸟的空间较少,而不是过寿命的iPad的尺寸。这就是为什么美国的人道金沙大赌场亚博app社会使笼子禁闭成为优先事项。

我们一直与立法者和公司合作,远离这些陈旧的做法,取得了巨大的成功。密歇根州只是过去一年中的第四州,我们已经获得了一项禁止母鸡笼宣传的法律。最后选举日,加州选民通过传递历史命题12.。We followed up on that victory by passing nearly identical protections for hens in俄勒冈州华盛顿。The HSUS and our coalition partners have also helped convince more than200个世界领先的食品公司要求他们的鸡蛋生产商切换到无笼的生产。

考虑一下:在2000年代中期,当我们决定结束极端监禁我们工作的核心焦点时,只有约3%的美国蛋产业是无笼的。今天,超过20%的行业是无笼的。我们仍然有很长的路要走,但进展是显着的,特别是当一个人认为每1%增加代表超过300万只鸟类时。虽然无笼不等同于无残忍,但由于我们所做的头路,每年出生的数千万只鸟类将永远不会知道被锁定在整个生命中的小笼子里的痛苦。

The Michigan law will also require that hens be provided enrichments vital to their psychological and physical well-being, including scratching areas, perches, nest boxes and dust-bathing areas. The measure comes into effect at the end of 2024, when all eggs produced and all shell eggs sold in Michigan will have to come from cage-free environments.

We are grateful to those in Michigan who worked hard to advance this robust law, including Gov. Gretchen Whitmer and her staff, conscientious members of the agriculture community, lawmakers from both parties, fellow national animal groups, and the state’s tremendous community of animal protection advocates and organizations. The progress in Michigan offers even more proof that the future for farm animals is cage-free, and you can rest assured we will continue to fight for the day when the scourge of cage confinement is erased for good.

    这真的不是鸡的胜利。你见过这些地方吗?他们会在大型无窗口的建筑中举起它们。鸡会如此挤在那里,他们将坐在彼此之上,粪便和死鸡。我见过这些地方。他们是可怕的。让他们保持在大笼子里更加人性化,但这不是答案。如果你不能养你自己的后院鸡,那就确保购买“牧草养殖”鸡蛋。这是唯一的人性化。我认为密歇根州的立法落后一步。 I’m so disappointed.
