Farmed Animal Assaults Increasing

All over the US there appears to be an increase in farmed animal assaults, often by angry, reckless youth. Since farmed animals have basically no protection from the law, these cases get little attention.

"It speaks to a prejudice against certain animals, not based on a rational assessment of their ability to feel pain but on our intended use for them." It seems that, in part to a strong cattleman's lobby, animal cruelty laws rarely apply to farmed animals since their "husbandry practices" might fall into that category.
