The Animal Protection Index establishes a ranking of 50 countries, including Australia, that are among the largest livestock producers. The index assesses animal welfare legislation and policy related to farm animals, animals in captivity, companion animals, working animals, animals used in recreation, animals used in scientific research and animals in the wild.
And guess what? We don't have the best animal welfare in the world after all. We are on par with India and Brazil, countries we might think we outdid...and we are well behind New Zealand. Yep, our neighbours across the ditch, as anticipated, thrash us with an A rating compared to our C. Seems we have been deluding ourselves.
