TV icon Bob Barker has sent a letter on PETA's (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) behalf to Wyoming state senators. In the letter, which is available as a PDF here, Barker urges the lawmakers to block House Bill (H.B.) 126. House Bill 126 introduced by Rep. Sue Wallis', R-Recluse, would make it a misdemeanor to record video or audio at a farm under false pretenses.
Opponents of the legislation that cleared the house earlier this week, fear it would prevent well meaning whistle-blowers from exposing abuse. When contacted about the letter yesterday Wallis said via e-mail that she was unaware of the letter sent to senators, and requested a copy of the letter.
