CNN’s Issues with Jane Velez-Mitchell ran a story about farm animal abuse. For example, the typical large-scale chicken farm houses one chicken in a cage so small that it cannot even spread its wings. An example size is only 67 square inches, which is smaller than a piece of notebook paper.
The news video of this report was uploaded on June 8, 2012.
Bruce Freidrich appears on the video. He is the Senior Director For Strategic Initiatives for Farm Sanctuary.
There is something called the Egg Bill that has some bipartisan support in Congress. It would increase the cage size so that only 50 hens could be put in space of 12 feet by 4 feet. This is not free range, of course, but it is much better than the current norm.
