Animal Rights Groups Targeted By Wisconsin Farm Organizations

Farm groups have contacted every member of the state Legislature urging them to scrutinize the agendas of animal rights activists.

Tuesday is the Humane Society's lobbying day at the state Capitol. The Humane Society's Jill Fritz says her group will talk to lawmakers about puppy mills and animal fighting.

A coalition of 15 farm organizations has sent a letter to legislators which says catering to animal rights activists like the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals will hurt the farm industry.

Casey Langan of the Wisconsin Farm Bureau Federation says they want to remind legislators that the farm industry is a major economic driver in the state, and that they have constituents who are doing a great job of taking care of their animals.
