Iowa is on the verge of becoming the first state to criminalize recording farm sights and sounds without prior permission from the farmer or business owner.
It’s become a hot-button issue in the waning days of the legislative session, one that pits environmental and animal rights activists against farmers and agribusiness interests.
On one side are the activists who surreptitiously record how animals are kept or slaughtered on farms. On the other side are the farm owners who don’t want them to do that.

If it would be up to me, I would make a law requiring all animal farms to have cameras with a public feed to the internet installed, so anyone can check up how the animals are treated. And this is coming from a meat-eater.
Animal farms are the concentration camps of the 21st century.
