Oklahoma State Attorney General Drew Edmondson raised concerns that the 345,000 tons of raw chicken sewage dumped by chicken farms in Oklahoma and Arkansas were the equivalent of untreated sewage from nearly 11 million people and were dirtying Oklahoma’s once-pristine rivers and lakes.

Oklahoma Federal Judge Gregory Frizzell agreed with the state attorney general in a ruling that said the excessive application of chicken waste could be regulated as pollution under federal anti-pollution laws.
Attorney General Edmondson, Oklahoma state and the Honorable Judge Frizzell, our sincere thanks for your concern and just ruling.

May all states be encouraged to act similarly in protecting the environment and the public from the health hazards of animal farming.
