Last Chance for Animals
Ag Gag is a state level legislation projected at punishing whistleblowers on farms with mass amounts of animals throughout the U.S.A. However there are many dangers with Ag Gag. For instance, the animal’s welfare is being jeopardies in factory farms because they are constantly being mistreated and physically abused by the workers. Undercover investigations need to be done on these farms because illegal animals cruelty is still going on and will remain unless the workers are caught in the act. Of course there is also food safety risks because when the animals are mishandled their meat and their byproducts can lead to serious health risks like antibiotic- resistant strains of salmonella and staph. I think the Ag Gag movement is terrible because this is just a way for factory farms to hide the abuse and horrific conditions happening in these factory farms.
