Yesterday, singer and animal activist Moby tweeted in support of protection for those fighting animal abuse through undercover investigations.
According to PETA, a new bill is set to go into effect that will stop undercover investigations from exposing cruelty to animals.
The bill, Senate Bill (S.B.) 373, would prevent future undercover work that shows how the factory-farming industry is abusing animals. Investigators and whistleblowers will be restricted from documenting such actions.
In the past, these secret investigations, like those conducted by PETA, have put a stop to horrible animal cruelty including sexual abuse, kicking and electro-shocking and even stomping on animals.
Ultimately, the bill prevents others from learning the truth about animals living – and dying – on factory farms.
S.B. 373 has already passed through the state Senate, so if you want to protect animals then head on over to PETA and sign the petition showcasing your opposition, before the House passes it.
