When something this monumental happens, you have to go home and lead the way!

Casey Affleck has returned to Massachusetts in support of an animal cruelty bill currently making its way through the state legislature.

The actor, who is vegan and a HUGE animal rights activist, is throwing his weight behind the Massachusetts Prevention of Farm Animal Cruelty Act, a bill that will outlaw inhumane treatment of animals at factory farms.

We're happier than a cow in the wide open plains about this move!

Casey states the following about the importance of the bill:

Americans don't see these things (animal cruelty) all that often, but if you YouTube them, they're brutal and immoral. I know there are a lot of issues - children shooting children, people without jobs, education, health care - but I think we can address multiple issues at the same time.

Casey hand-wrote a letter supporting the bill and delivered it to the State House himself; he also hopes to discuss the bill with state lawmakers.

Now THAT'S how you stand behind animals!

    Kudos to Casey Affleck for his interest in animal cruelty & support to change the lives of our farm animals. NOONE has the right to treat these animals this way and it needs to stop! So thankful for celebs who stand up for real issues and arent just worried about what they are wearing to their next event!

    Well done, Casey. Every time we have an opportunity to reduce cruelty, we need to embrace it and run with at far as we can go. Consumers need to be informed and understand the reality of their consumption choices. Companies like to hide away the awfulness of what it means to mass produce meat and animal products.
