Proposition 2 Articles
The Washington Post has a feature on California's Proposition 2 today, which is the measure that would end the use of cruel means of confinement such as gestation crates for pigs, veal crates for baby cows, and battery cages for egg-laying hens. The New York Times ran a similar column on Friday detailing the Proposition. While the focus is on California, both articles mention Florida's 2002 ground breaking ban on gestation crates for sows. As noted in a previous post here, five Florida cities had passed resolutions opposing battery cage confinement for hens.
