Criminalize Recreational Activity and Food Production: Oregon already has strong laws prohibiting animal abuse. IP 3 significantly expands those laws by criminalizing the following activities that involve the killing of animals:
IP 3 would also ban breeding of any kind, including:
Catastrophic for our Economy from the Coast to the Desert: IP 3 wouldn’t just put fisherman, farmers and ranchers out of business, it would cause local food processors to close, impact farm suppliers, restaurants, transportation companies, distributors, farm workers, retailers, all the way to the grocery store shelves.
Detrimental to the Environment:
Immense Risk to Food Supply: Banning all killing or slaughter of animals within Oregon would decimate the local food supply. Any operations, whether a small family farm, a few backyard chickens, larger dairies that create our most famous brands or taking wild birds, fish or game for meat would make Oregon completely reliant on out-of-state production of meat, eggs and dairy products.
