Ag-Gag Bill Proposed in Kentucky

The rights of farm animals in Kentucky are in danger if a new bill passes.

The state is the latest to introduce an Ag-Gag bill that would make the undercover filming of farm operations without the farmer’s consent illegal.

The bill was proposed by the Senate Agriculture Committee and according to Kentucky Farm Bureau executive Jeff Harper it is needed since the state has become a target for animal rights activists.

A month ago an undercover investigation by The Humane Society of the United States exposed severe animal cruelty at a western Kentucky pig farm. The Iron Maiden Hog Farm had 900 piglets die from a diarrhea infection in two days and afterwards the intestines of the dead animals were ground up and served as food to the pigs living in gestation crates so tight they could barely move.

If HB-222 passes, investigations like this would be outlawed with whistleblowers being subject to up to 90 days in jail and a $250 fine.

Looks like the meat industry in Kentucky has a whole lot worse to hide.
