Massachusetts Activists: Question Would Protect Farm Animals from Cruelty

News CBS Boston Aug 19, 2015

Animal advocates converged on the Statehouse Wednesday to launch a ballot question campaign they say will help protect farm animals from cruelty.

The coalition, Citizens for Farm Animal Protection, includes veterinarians, animal welfare groups, farmers, and others hoping to eliminate what they describe as the extreme confinement of farm animals in small crates and cages.

The measure would require that animals have enough room to turn around, lie down and stretch their limbs.
