USDA Vital Information Wiped Off Their Site

mother pig and baby in factory farmIf you have ever investigated or researched American businesses involving nonhuman animals being confined or used, you are familiar already with the USDA Inspection results and numbers and other facts posted on the USDA website. This is where you can discover documented animal welfare violations perpetrated on animals being exploited by circuses, zoos, laboratories, dog breeders, factory farms… this action blacks out vital information for journalists, animal advocates, and instead protects animal abusers from the public spotlight.

Please, fill out THIS FORM on the USDA site and let them know how you feel about this information black out. Or you can call: 840-822-2234 to vocalize your concern.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]
