The Continuing Impact of Proposition 2

In the wake of Prop 2, lawmakers in California have apparently been bitten by the animal protection bug.  Legislation is working its way through both chambers that would ban tail-docking of dairy cows, ban importation of eggs from out-of-state facilities that use unacceptable battery cages, abolish large-scale puppy mills, and increase the penalties for poaching wildlife.   There are also initiatives afoot in Maine and Ohio to ban veal and gestation crates and we may soon see a similar initiative in New York.  Full story here.

  1. This makes me happy. My biggest worry about Prop. 2 is that in implementation, it doesn’t do nearly enough. Changing minds, however, is THE biggest and best thing an activist can do, and I am very glad this is changing the way we talk about animal rights, even if it’s only in a foreign country like California.
