Guest will be: Midge Grinstead- Kansas Senior State Director - The Humane Society of the United States
There are three issues Midge Grinstead has worked on last legislated session: SB 97 was a bad bill allowing human contact with big cats 40 lbs and under and de-listing Clouded Leopards from the dangerous regulated animals act. Midge also worked on an exotic bill to add non-human primates and wolves to the dangerous regulated animals act (HB2737)
The other bill was brought forth from the Dept of Agriculture and updated the Kansas . Pet Animal Act including banning CO chambers, allowing shelters to do mobile adoptions and giving the rescue groups representation on the board as well as many other positive changes for animal welfare like having water available to all animals under the pet animal act. This bill was supported by the Kansas Pet Animal Coalition, large and small animal welfare groups, the Kansas Animal Control Association and many others.

GAG ORDER With "ag gag" bills, Big Ag seeks to stifle reform
Inside windowless barns, sows chewed the bars of their gestation crates, confined so tightly that they couldn’t even turn around. Brown puddles had formed from a diarrhea outbreak. And piles of dead piglets were being gutted—so that their intestines could be fed to their mothers.
These images would have remained hidden there in Owensboro, Kentucky, if HSUS undercover investigators hadn’t videotaped the dark reality. It was hard to watch, but critical: The feeding of pigs to pigs violated state law. Other practices seemed to violate human decency.
“At the end of the day,” an investigator reported, a sow “started making the worst sound I have heard since I started working [here]. I ran to her and she had gotten her nose in between the leverage bar that opens and closes the feed trough and a bar on her cage. … [She] scraped her nose about an inch long [leaving] her mouth bleeding.”
If proposed “ag gag” laws are passed, moments like these will stay concealed from the American public. Introduced in state legislatures around the country the last few years at the behest of the meat, dairy and egg industry, the bills seek to criminalize whistleblowing by making it illegal to take video or photos on factory farms or to seek employment for the purpose of exposing abuse and food safety problems. They also sometimes require mandatory reporting with impossibly short timelines so that whistleblowers must “out” themselves and no pattern of abuse can be documented.
