Writer Will Potter raised money through Kickstarter to buy drones and other equipment to investigate animal agriculture in the U.S. He says drones will help him circumvent so-called “ag-gag” laws.
This year, 15 bills in 11 states attempted to make undercover videos on farms illegal. Not a single one passed. Activists say a broad-based coalition that tapped the grass-roots concern for animal welfare helped defeat the measures.
