I feel that this reading is very relevant to both of our readings, it is showing awareness to animal cruelty in states that normally wouldn’t get a lot of animal cruelty attention due to their location. A state like Kentucky where its labeled as one of the best places for animal abusers to live in should be a red flag for all animal lovers and human beings. Not only should all animal rights groups pay attention to these types of states but all citizens living in these states should take a better look at what is going on next door to them. This link not only points out the weaknesses of animal rights as far as Kentucky, but it also points out how much more work needs to be done as far as animal cruelty awareness goes. From our readings a point that stood out to me was how young a boy a girl can start to show signs of animal cruelty and also the type of career can also affect once feelings on how we feel about animal cruelty. The moral ethic view of animals not only the ones that we live with but the ones that we consume is that all animals should be treated fairly and human because just like humans can feel pleasure and pain so can an animal. And there is a big difference between a butcher, hunter, and a murderer.
In conclusion I believe animals need a voice and that if we do not become that voice for them they will never be treated in a human way. The content read not only re-assured me that doing a small part toward preventing animal cruelty and suffering can add to the big picture of giving animals a voice. Its important to start somewhere and to spread the word that even by rescuing animals instead of purchasing from puppy mills is a start to preventing animal cruelty.
