AG-GAG Laws Challenged

The fight between farm organizations and animal rights activists over so called “ag-gag” laws continues.

The laws prohibit secretly filmed pictures of commercial and other farm operations.

Now laws that prohibit those types of secretly obtained pictures in Utah and Idaho face constitutional challenges.

Half of U.S. states have attempted to pass so-called ag-gag laws, but only seven including Indiana have been successful.

Indiana's proposed ag-gag law was scaled back considerably before being signed into law.

In Utah farm trespassers could be fined $5,000 and be sent to jail for a year.

Farm organizations and livestock producers say ag-gag laws are aimed at protecting their homes and businesses from intruders, but animal rights groups, free-speech activists and investigative journalists want to throw out the laws because they say the secrecy puts consumers at higher risk of food safety problems and animals at higher risk of abuse.
