Pork Producers' Intent Under Question

Wed, 25 Aug 2010 17:20:34 CDT

Pork Producersí Intent Under Question In an effort that could have industry-wide implications, the director of the Factory Farming Campaign for the Humane Society of the United States is questioning why the pork industry in Missouri is challenging the Puppy Mill Cruelty Prevention Act being considered in that state. HSUS' Paul Shapiro believes members of the agricultural community should ask what type of leadership they have in their industry that would choose to expend their resources and their reputation on such a battle.

HSUS is part of a coalition that gathered more than 190-thousand signatures of registered Missouri voters to place an anti-puppy mill measure on the November 2010 statewide ballot that would require anyone who has more than 10 breeding dogs to meet certain standards for housing, food and veterinary care. Owners would be limited to no more than 50 breeding dogs.

Shapiro says it's a shame the opposition to a measure intended to protect puppies and dogs is being led by the pork producers in the state. He says - agribusiness interests seem intent on opposing any animal welfare initiative regardless of how unrelated to agriculture it is.
