Boston College Cafeterias Go Cage-Free Thanks To SALDF StudentsPosted by Nicole Pallotta, ALDF's Animal Law Program Student Liaison on December 11th, 2009
Proving that a few voices can create positive change, Boston College Law School Student Animal Legal Defense Fund (SALDF) members convinced the school to stop using eggs from hens kept in battery cages and instead switch to using cage-free eggs.
"In order to convey what a battery-cage looks like and how much room each chicken was allowed, we were able to secure an actual battery-cage that was once used in an industrial factory farm. Providing this type of visual representation of a battery-cage proved to have the most impact on students, many of whom did not know of the barbaric practices used by most chicken farms."
