What is animal welfare? Depends on who ya ask.
Some think that if animals are alive, that’s enough. Others think there must be a quality of life standard.
Animal researchers and animal agriculture each have their own standards they abide by (or don’t).
Oh, then there’s the ones selling everything from toys, to medicine, to food, to training….. they set the bar high so you’ll spend money on their products and services.
Personally, I think a species that can’t take care of its own should not determine what kind of existence we deserve.
