Tell Legislators to Honor Free Speech about CAFOs in Arkansas

SB13  makes an “improper animal investigation” by someone who is not a “certified law enforcement officer” a Class B misdemeanor with a potential civil penalty of $5,000. SB14 makes “interference with livestock or poultry” a Class B misdemeanor. “Interference” is defined as creating a concealed image or sound recording or by applying for employment as part of an undercover investigation.

It’s clear the only reason for this legislation is to keep the public from seeing the shocking conditions that exist on CAFOs. If passed into law, these bills will protect large factory farms by making undercover investigations into animal care illegal. Those who report and expose cruelty to animals would risk huge fines.

Tell your legislator that photographing CAFOs is protected speech under the First Amendment, and if farmers don’t want their dirty laundry aired, they should simply make their farms sanitary and treat their animals humanely. Rather than stop cruel treatment of animals, these bills will simply ensure that the public never learns about it.
