New Law Offers Cash Rewards To Whistle Blowers Of Animal Abuse

Starting now, whistle blowers could earn up to a five-thousand-dollar reward if their tip leads to the arrest and conviction of anyone involved in the abuse of farm animals. The Humane Society of the United States has launched a national tip line where callers can report animal abuse at farms, slaughterhouses or livestock auctions. Paul Shapiro with the Humane Society says as a result of their undercover investigations, they have found animal abuse rampant in the U-S. The tip-line is especially for workers at farms and slaughterhouses, but anyone can call and report abuse, and also remain anonymous if they choose.
