The Humane Society is working to prevent what it considers cruel factory farming practices, such as keeping animals in spaces so small they can barely move. They are backing Ohio for Humane Farms’ initiative to add a measure to November’s ballot. The measure would call for the fair treatment of laying hens, pregnant cows, and veal calves. John Dinon of the Toledo Area Humane Society describes the measures as “some common sense initiatives, real basic animal welfare and food safety initiatives.”
