INFORMATION / TALKING POINTS
Even those who live outside of Missouri can help stop this bill from becoming law. The meat from slaughtered animals crosses state lines, and Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon needs to hear from consumers across the country who care about the way that animals killed for food are treated.
Missouri Senate Bill (S.B.) 631, which has reached the governor's desk, would require that suspected abuse videotaped on factory farms be reported to law-enforcement authorities within 24 hours, making it harder for undercover investigators to collect evidence showing a pattern of systemic cruelty to animals. This bill is a desperate attempt by agriculture industry giants to prevent consumers from learning the truth about the lives and deaths of animals on factory farms. Past investigations of factory farms resulted in criminal convictions of farm managers and workers found routinely beating, sexually abusing, stomping on, kicking, and throwing animals.
Thank you for everything you do for animals!
