Missouri- Cats and Dogs are Not "Livestock"

  • by: Animal Advocates
  • target: Missouri Senator Claire McCaskill, Senator Roy Blunt

A few dangerous bills are aiming to change the Missouri Constitution with an amendment that would eliminate animal rights and limit the right of Missourians to petition their state government. These bills are House Joint Resolution (HJR) 11 and 7 and Senate Joint Resolution (SJR) 22  propose an additional section (to be known as Sec. 35) of Article I of the Missouri Constitution.

When the bill states “…the right of farmers and ranchers to engage in modern farming and ranching practices”,  and talks about livestock, this includes cats and dogs- and puppy mills.

The legislation would assure that Missouri would be the "puppy mill" captitol of the world;  that there would be no local control of factory farms; and that Missouri voters would be unable to change this law by submitting grass-roots ballot initiatives, limiting the right of Missourians to petition their state government.

Tell Missouri- cats and dogs are not livestock,- and that citizens should not have their right to petition government for redress of grievances limited.
