MASSACHUSETTS VOTES YES ON QUESTION 3
Voters passed Question 3, which phases out greyhound racing by
2010 at the few remaining Massachusetts racetracks. Racing dogs
endure lives of terrible confinement, kept in small cages barely
large enough to stand up or turn around for 20 or more hours per
day. The dogs also suffer serious injuries in high-speed
collisions on the track, including broken legs, head trauma and
heart attacks. Fortunately, there's now a light at the end of
the tunnel for these gentle dogs.
CALIFORNIANS VOTE YES ON PROP 2
California voters passed Proposition 2 by a resounding margin.
As a result, 20 million animals in California will soon be spared the worst abuses of factory farms.
