Ohio Factory Farm Campaign Kicks Off Signature Drive

A couple weeks ago, I recorded a podcast featuring Paul Shapiro, in which we discussed the upcoming ballot initiative in Ohio—which would ban battery cages along with veal and gestation crates, plus outlaw inhumane euthanasia of sick animals. Since our podcast, Paul traveled to four Ohio cities to do signature gathering kickoffs. Mercy For Animals, who is joining HSUS in this campaign, just blogged these events.

The Ohio effort is arguably an even more important and higher stakes initiative than the 2008 California Prop 2 campaign. I hope you’ll consider donating to the campaign, and, if you’re from Ohio, taking part in signature gathering. OhioHumane.com has the details.
