Here’s the best and the worst States ranked according to their animal protection laws, published by the Animal Legal Defense Fund. No surprise Kentucky — where we work out of now — is so close to the bottom in 47th place. Only New Mexico, Iowa and Mississippi are lower.
Illinois are #1 in the country. Again. Well done Illinois.
Surprised that Oregon is #2 where they have the infamous Omak Suicide Race which we cannot seem to get shut down. Obviously the Fund for Horses needs to take a much closer look.
Horse tripping is illegal in Oregon, but the law is not enforced. So more work clearly needs to be done on this as well.
