I just saw this post from the Change.org Animal Rights blog about animal abuse. Stephanie Ernst makes the point that all animal farming is inherently abusive to animals.

Please read her post: Defining Abuse (Yes, All Farmed Animals Are Abused).

I would add that unnaturally confining animals and not allowing them to indulge in natural, instinctive behaviours is abusive. This includes keeping waterfowl like ducks and geese indoors where they can’t swim, removing baby animals from their mothers, and castrating animals without anesthesia.

This of course leaves out the unnecessary killing of the animals.

True that. We (collectively) must imagine ourselves in their positions and define abuse from that standpoint.
