To the editor:
I have no clue what would cause an eccentric oil baron to spend millions fighting against protections for dogs in puppy mills and abused farm animals.
Thankfully, polls show that Massachusetts residents overwhelmingly support Question 3, which would simply require that pigs, chickens and calves be given enough space to extend their limbs and turn around fully. It is wrong to confine any animal in a cage so small that she can hardly move an inch, as is commonly done by industrial meat and egg producers.
I proudly stand with the more than 100 ethical Massachusetts farmers, as well as the MSPCA and numerous food safety groups, in supporting Question 3.
