In Idaho someone shot video of dairy workers mistreating cows. The result? "State schools are teaming up with the the industry to offer classes on how to handle animals" ("Idaho kids learn cow etiquette after abuse video," Sept. 23).

Now just think what would have happened had that occurred here in Utah. The person shooting the video would have been arrested under Utah's Ag Gag law and the abuse would continue.
