Humane Talk (7-14-2014) #8029: Good news for egg-laying hens is a Federal bill aimed at phasing out barren battery cages for egg-laying hens that will give these birds more space; Wayne talks about the horse diving entertainment that was canceled after public outcry over an attempt to re-open “horse diving,” an Atlantic City dangerous spectacle that became popular in the 1920s, with horses forced to walk up to an elevated platform that dropped and plunged them 30 feet into a tank of water.
