Gary Peters for Congress
Tomorrow is Michigan's congressional primary election, and advocates of animal protection need to know who is standing up for their interests. The Humane Society Legislative Fund is the non-partisan political arm of the humane movement, and we want you to know that Gary Peters is a friend of animal protection.
We're encouraging animal advocates to support Gary Peters in tomorrow's primary election for Michigan's 14th Congressional District.
Gary Peters is one of Congress’s strongest leaders on animal protection issues. Among his efforts, he has:
- Sponsored a bill to ban trafficking in obscene animal “crush” videos.
- Sponsored an amendment to stop wealthy trophy hunters from shooting threatened polar bears in the Arctic and importing their hides or heads.
- Sponsored an amendment to save millions of taxpayer dollars by ending subsidies for lethal predator control for ranchers.
- Co-sponsored a bill to ban barren battery cages, creating a national animal welfare standard for 280 million egg-laying hens.
- Co-sponsored a bill to establish penalties for knowingly attending an animal fight, with felony penalties for taking a minor.
- Co-sponsored a bill to protect dogs and crack down on large-scale puppy mill abuses.
- Led effort to end the U.S. Army poisoning monkeys with overdoses of toxic chemicals and replacing them with humane, non-animal alternatives in chemical warfare training.
