I don’t normally get involved in partisan politics, but we have to give credit where credit is due. And right now, that’s to Gov. Chris Christie.
New Jersey’s legislature fell for the scheme. They passed a bill which would have banned the use of gestation crates. “The legislation was championed by the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) and other radical animal-rights activists even though it would have prevented farmers from caring for their animals in a way approved by the American Veterinary Medical Association and the American Association of Swine Veterinarians.” (Source: NPPC)
But Chris Christie vetoed the legislation.
So, our hats off to him for standing up against the giant animal rights interest groups and for animal agriculture (and common sense).
