A statement by Bruce Friedrich, Vice President of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, on yesterday's historic verdict:

Every consumer owes a debt of gratitude to Adam Durand and other activists who are doing the government's work for them by exposing the cruelties of modern factory farms. They are also doing the work of Gandhi and King, educating the nation to injustice, oppression and, in this case, the cruelties of modern farms, cruelties that all kind people oppose. It was a good jury for recognizing that saving injured animals is not a crime. And anyone who watches the video at WegmansCruelty.com will see that they were right because sick, dying, and diseased animals were filmed in cages with other animals, and with no care. They'll see animals caught in the wire cages and drowning in their own excrement. Intervening to help an animal or human in need should be applauded and not prosecuted. Anyone who sees how hens suffer in sheds like Wegman's can't help but be revolted. Adam's actions have allowed thousands of consumers to learn about the dark side of the egg industry, and for that, he deserves the gratitude of all caring people.

    How do I get invovled? I saw this video and am horrified. I live in KY, someone has to give people a rally point for where to start after they watch this film.
