VOTERS ELIMINATE TIGHT PENS

Massachusetts voters overwhelmingly approved a ballot measure Tuesday to allow for more spacious cages for chickens, pigs and calves. The legislation, approved by 78% of voters in the state, prohibits farms from confining any egg-laying hen, breeding pig or calf raised for veal in a way that prevents the animal from “lying down, standing up, fully extending its limbs, or turning around freely.” (Washington Post)
