New California law would stop farm animals that win top county fair prizes from ... trends now

A new California law is set to prevent farm animals that win top county fair prizes from automatically being slaughtered for food after a nine-year-old girl sued the state fair for killing her beloved pet goat.

Last week, Assemblymember Ash Kalra, 52, introduced Bill 3053 to allow kids to enter their animals in county fairs without the risk of them being sentenced to death. 

The bill would also permit children to withdraw their entries any time before offsite transport and allow bidders to pick up their animal winners live rather than as slabs of meat. 

The proposal follows the cruel slaughter of Cedar the goat, a seven-month-old white Boer cared by Jessica Long's daughter who entered it into the Shasta District Fair's junior livestock auction but later changed her mind. 

The fair denied the family's request to withdraw and sold Cedar - so the mom brazenly stole the goat back before it was given to the buyer.
