Maine Bans Veal and Gestation Crates!

Huge news today. Maine’s Governor, John Baldacci, just signed a bill that will ban veal and gestation crates in just twenty months.

The animal rights people who spoke out against Prop 2 really missed the boat; today’s victory in Maine was made possible by our November victory in California. Link.

Update: HSUS’ Paul Shapiro just agreed to join me for a podcast we’ll record later this afternoon. Look for it here by this evening.
