Indiana: OPPOSE AG-GAG Bills That Would Criminalize Exposing Animal Cruelty

Name: Interference with Agricultural Operations
Number: SB 101

Legislators in Indiana propose to make entering onto property engaged in agricultural operations with the intent to cause property damage a class 5 or 6 felony offense depending on the loss suffered. This bill would dramatically decrease the threshold to trigger a felony trespass to agricultural operations from a minimum of $250,000 down to just $750. This bill does specify that this felony trespass provision applies only when there is property damage, and not “pecuniary loss” as originally introduced.

Call to action:

    1. Please contact your state Senator and ask him/her to OPPOSE passing legislation that would criminalize the efforts of individuals to expose animal abuse and cruelty at agricultural facilities.
    2. Spread the word! Share this page with your social network.
