Just the Basics of Factory Farming

The ASPCA made this animation in order to bring attention to AgGag laws. Factory farms attempt to hide their unsafe and unethical activities with these Ag-gag or "whistleblower suppression" bills that seek to cover up horrific animal abuse. We are also encouraging folks to sign a Change.org petition against Ag-gag legislation, which we’ll be delivering to the National Conference of State Legislatures: www.change.org/aspca/ag-gag.

While crafted to appear reasonable, these bills seek to criminalize undercover investigations on farms, often declaring it illegal to take photos or videos on industrial farms.Alarmingly, Ag-gag bills have been introduced in nearly half the states (20) and seven bills have already passed into law.
