HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) _ An animal rights group is citing a federal judge's order as it makes plans to show a controversial video inside a tent at the Kansas State Fair.

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals said Thursday it will also give away free copies of its video ``Glass Walls'' at the fair opening Friday. The video contains footage taken undercover of animals being slaughtered and abused at factory farms.

PETA went to court after fair officials said the group would have to shield people passing its booth from being exposed to photos and video of animal abuse.

The judge ruled officials acted reasonably in imposing restrictions that would still allow fairgoers to see the video if they desire.
