    If a farm is abusing animals, often they deny it. What is law enforcement to do? They don't have the resources to always do a proper investigation. People / organizations who are getting solid evidence of abuse are doing us and the animals a big favor.

    If you are a farmer, and don't want to be caught abusing animals, rather than lobby to ban people taking pictures of your mis-conduct, instead, ensure you are treating your animals properly.

    If you are a legislator, please realize that if this law passes, there will be animals who will be abused who otherwise wouldn't be.

    I'm curious about how much money agribusinesses have donated to Utah's politicians this year?

    This law would violate Whistleblower laws in any case.

    I agree with your letter Colleen. I agree with Esquire and share Hutterite's sarcasism. Remember that what is good for the business man's pocket is good for all of us. Just ask them about their magic formula's of how they are justified for sweetheart deals and special laws to protect them. Try getting a special law for you and me.

    Once we get rid of the USDA and the FDA, we can balance the budget and have safer food. Right?

    It's all about conservatives in the Legislature taking care of special interests. You aren't expecting them to be all that concerned with what is in the best interests of the general public, are you?
