What in your opinion, is today's best example of Animal Cruelty?
Purely for discussion, and for the purpose of raising awareness.
The mass-market meat industry. We've sort of turned a blind eye to the inhumane storage facilities that these animals are kept in. We see pictures of cows and pigs jammed in little cages and we think "Yeah, but that burger is fast and cheap". But just imagine if it was the same image with dogs and cats. People would go nuts.
People shouldn't adopt pets in the first place unless you sign a contract that you will keep it till old age.
By far I would say "dog fights", "bull fighting", and last but not least "cockfighting" for sporting events (which is said to go back 6000 years in Persia). It still remains popular in many countries.
In some regional variations, the birds are equipped with either metal spurs (called gaffs) or knives, tied to the leg in the area where the bird's natural spur has been partially removed.
It's usually a fight to the death.
