Emma was just a baby bird when her legs started to go numb. By 10 weeks of age, she could no longer stand. When DxE investigators found her, she was crying out and closing her eyes as a horde of birds trampled her.
Over 8 million Californians voted for Proposition 2, which promised a cage-free future for animals suffering in factory farms. But footage from a major supplier of Trader Joe's, Safeway, and Costco shows that California voters have been deceived.
There has not been a single enforcement action in Prop 2's history. Animal control officers say they lack the most basic information needed to enforce the law.
While the public was promised cage-free, hens are still being raised in cramped cages that the industry refers to as “enriched colony” systems.
Millions of hens are mutilated, starved, and trampled to death in the crowded conditions on egg farms. None of them will ever see the sun or step outside.
Emma is now living out her life in a peaceful home, where she enjoys pecking, scratching, and even playing chase. But there are countless other animals who need our help. Join us in the #FightForEmma and demand that the state and local government hold animal abusing companies accountable!
