Animals’ Angels Executive Director Sonja Meadows met with the California State Veterinarian and other representatives of California government and agricultural industry. The aim was to share the observations made by Animals’ Angels investigators at auctions, feedlots and plants and to find possible ways to improve conditions. The main areas of concern were the handling of non-ambulatory animals and the horse slaughter issue. The meetings were very constructive and may have opened the door for some very effective ideas to change the lives of California farm animals.
