FREE TO ROAM

Farm animal rights law would require room to roam – Yahoo! News

This fall, California voters will consider the most comprehensive farm animal rights law in the country, a measure that would ban cramped metal cages for egg-laying hens, metal gestation crates for pregnant sows and veal crates for calves — standard industry practices in which the animals are kept so confined that they can barely move.

Our backyard meneagerie supports animal’s right to roam.  Since they get enjoy sunshine, dirt, bugs and stretch their legs, they think every animal should have the same opportunity.

Thanks L for brining this to our attention.  Good luck with your petition.

    Great photo! May they be free to roam and stick out their tongues!

    My goats are pushing for the right to live in the house. My 4 year old let them in yesterday and we found them happily curled up in the dog’s bed.

    Ha! My chickens want to come inside too… they always sit on the back door steps and peer in through the screen door, especially when I’m working in the kitchen. I think they are wondering what goodies I’ll bring out for them next, and if they can shorten the wait somehow! (and yes, I do have to sweep the patio often. Oh well…it’s worth it for their companionship and bug hunting.) I think the hens think the indoor cats (which peer back out at them) are just a variety of dog, and aren’t afraid. They love my big laborador – he sleeps with them in their dust bath sometimes. Really, with all this, who needs tv?

    Anais: I’ve been wondering about your goats. I have seen your place and wonder how you got around the zoning. We checked Pasadena (we’re here too)and the city requires two goats to be kept 200 freet from any dwelling, or something like that. Did you just decide to do it anyway, or do you know something I don’t about goatkeeping in Pasadena? Thanks, Marcia
