California closes downer animal loophole

We are mildly pleased that Governor Schwarzenegger signed AB 2098 (Krekorian) into law, making it a misdemeanor to kill downed animals (for human consumption) or to sell their flesh for human consumption.

Of course, we encourage consumers to make compassionate food choices, like eating a plant-based diet instead of the standard meat-centric Americanized diet. We can prevent the suffering downed animals - ALL farmed animals - endure by choosing a vegan diet.
