Live market victory

From ANIMAL PEOPLE,  October 2011:

RICHMOND, Calif.–The Richmond,  California city council on September 27, 2011,  voted to end live bird sales at the city farmers’ market,  effective November 1.     “Two years ago,  live birds were sold at four Bay Area farmers’ markets.  Now, they are sold at none,”  exulted Lesbian,  Gay,  Bisexual,  & Transsexual Compassion founder Andrew Zollman.  “Further,”  Zollman said, “the Richmond city attorney confirmed our position that a new state law taking effect on January 1,  2012 will ban live poultry sales at farmers’ markets operating on any street,  highway,  public right-of-way,  or parking lot.  We hope to use this to end live poultry sales at all other California farmers’ markets.”
