The increased space must be enough to allow the animals to turn around freely, lie down, stand up, and fully extend their limbs, according to the law. (National Geographic)


  1. This is so long overdue and wonderful to see movement in the direction of treating the creatures who have no choice in making the ultimate sacrifice, as living creatures rather than as like Graceiela says, “things”. There’s still a long ways to go, such as in slaughter practices, but its good to see something happening. Hopefully other locales will follow suit.

  2. This is a small step in the right direction but real and lasting change can only come from within. If this bill causes some to re-evaluate their position on eating animals then that will have more of an impact. Eating animals is unnecessary to our diet and actually causes more harm than good. Plus by eating them you are supporting their needless slaughter no matter how humane our laws appear to be.
