Walking Horse Report has learned that a bill introduced in the Kentucky State Senate was unanimously approved on Tuesday, March 25, 2014, that would make it a crime to film farm operations on private property without the owner’s consent. Anyone caught filming on private property without permission from the owner would be subject to a class B misdemeanor, punishable by up to 90 days in jail and a $250 fine.

A spokesman for Kentucky Farm Bureau said this measure is definitely needed to protect farmers’ property rights and it is a major priority of Kentucky Farm Bureau.

Of course, the legislation is hotly contested by the Humane Society of the United States. To read the full story on this bill, go to the Lexington Herald-Leader at http://www.kentucky.com/2014/03/25/3160704/kentucky-bill-would-prohibit-filming.html#storylink=cpy.
