Animal cruelty next issue?

So will this area be watching as the Humane Society strives to upgrade what the Ohio Farm Bureau and Ag Department Director Bob Boggs (of Rock Creek in Ashtabula County) already got started with voter approval to watch farm animals?

As of last look, the Humane Society might be close to having its required 400,000-plus voter signatures to file petitions by nest Wednesday deadline (June 30) for getting on the ballot in November.

But some say both sides still talk of some kind of agreement to cancel the ballot fight in favor of some agreement on curbing cruelty to farm animals in small cages in Ohio.

There is SO MUCH cruelty (and more) to animals in this area of Ohio, it is UNREAL! There is a great deal going on that the public needs to be aware of. Ohio needs stricter laws and a great deal of enforcement regarding animals!!!
