Britain to ban animals from circuses: “Animal Welfare Minister Jim Paice recently told MPs that a new policy was ‘close to completion.'”
Greece follows suit: “The government has suggested an amendment in the law on animal rights that will increase the criminal liability for torturing animals, a media report said. Violators will be jailed.”
This prompts one to ask, Does America care less about animals than other countries?
It’s no secret that some countries take animal welfare/rights more seriously than the United States does, just as some states take animal welfare/rights more seriously than do others. Imagine receiving a deferred sentence for killing 170 animals through intentional neglect. Or a Christian horse rescue operation suggesting that slaughter (rather than an end to over-breeding) is an appropriate “solution.” “We may be the only horse rescue operation in the United States that feels that humane harvesting of horses should be part of the solution as long as it is done in a humane manner.”
