Say NO to Farm Bill
In a disappointing late-night move, the House leadership refused to allow debate on any animal welfare amendments when the Farm Bill goes to the full House. Bipartisan amendments on horse slaughter, horse soring, and protecting egg-laying hens were left out of consideration, while the dangerous, overreaching "King Amendment" remains in the Farm Bill. The King Amendment seeks to repeal state laws regarding agriculture production and could nullify measures on farm animal confinement, horse slaughter, puppy mills, shark Read More

He came here at the same time as Bengali, his brother. While Bengali is very social, playful, and loves to play pranks on all the keepers, Sarmoti is the more serious of the two. Sarmoti has developed quite an interest in Read More
