Tell Legislators to Honor Free Speech about CAFOs in Wyoming

HB0126 makes “knowingly or intentionally” recording the image or sound froman agricultural operation without the consent of the owner or manager is a misdemeanor punishable for up to six months in jail and a $750 fine. It also requires reporting animal abuse within 48 hours, so no ongoing recording of
cruelty can take place—no undercover operations or long-term investigations can happen.

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, this bill 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, this bill will simply ensure that the public never learns about it.
