Ballot Initiative Launched in Washington State

Following in the footsteps of Florida, Arizona and California, Farm Sanctuary has joined with HSUS and citizens in Washington State to launch an initiative effort to prevent the exploitation of egg-laying hens. Approximately 280 million hens live in battery cages so small that each bird is given less space than an 8 ½ by 11 inch sheet of paper. As a result, these animals can barely move and are unable to engage in basic natural behaviors, for which they suffer both physical and psychological disorders.

Little by little there have been some improvements in the way God’s farmed animals are treated. Hopefully, the people in Washington State will realize that egg-laying hens suffer tremendously for the sake of profit and taste of those who support this industry. Even better, if more people decided to avoid egg consumption for ethical, health and/or environmental reasons, much suffering would be reduced in God’s Creation.
