Chicken Abuser’s Column Sparks Critical Response.
All Letters in Today’s San Luis Obispo Tribune Pan Lon Allan’s Perspective
Not a single letter in Allan’s defense. All letters including UPC president Karen Davis’s defend chickens against the savagery and stupidity of this writer. To read today’s Letters: http://www.sanluisobispo.com/182/story/467992.html.
On September 9, the San Luis Obispo Tribune ran “Chicken rights don’t belong on the ballot,” a column by a California chicken farmer, Lon Allan. He urged readers to vote No on Proposition 2, a California ballot initiative that, if voted into law in November, would require more living space for hens used for egg production, pregnant sows, and calves raised for veal in California, starting in 2015. He argued that chickens deserve to be mistreated. His column and readers’ comments can be read at: http://www.sanluisobispo.com/news/local/story/464800.html.
