These states need to be ashamed for their lack of compassion for animals.

The Animal Legal Defense Fund has studied the laws each has for animals who suffer abuse, whether it's from cruelty, sexual assault, neglect, or other forms.

Sadly, many states just aren't making the cut.

The worst state in the country is Kentucky, which lacks many basic provisions against felony abuse or does it classify what is basic care for animal.

The godawful part is that Kentucky forbids vets from reporting suspected abuse or cruelty!

WTFeezy?!?!?! Srsly, why can't pets get any love???

The top ten includes:

1. Kentucky
2. North Dakota
3. Iowa
4. South Dakota
5. New Mexico
6. Wyoming
7. New Jersey
8. Hawaii
9. Utah
10. Alaska

The alarming rate of ag gag laws, or laws the prevent reports of abuse is a concern for animal advocates.

Factory farms are allowed to police themselves and inadequate laws are allowing these farms to get away with too much.

Something needs to be done to protect these poor critters!
