Florida Governor Lifts Ban on Dyeing Animals

Update:
On April 6, 2012, Governor Scott approved HB 1197, which repealed a 45 year old law that made it illegal to
artificially dye or color baby chicks, ducklings, rabbits, and other animals. Take a moment to send a polite comment to Governor Scott, letting him know how you feel about this decision.

Original Alert:
In March, the Florida legislature passed Amendment 303390
as part of an agriculture bill that, if signed by Governor Rick Scott,
will repeal a 45 year old ban on artificially dyeing animals.

Using dye to color chicks, bunnies, and other animals used to be a
common practice to encourage impulse purchases prior to Easter. The
animals suffer from the chemicals and may die or be discarded by buyers
once their novelty wears off.
