The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) released its second annual Humane State Ranking, a report rating all 50 states on a range of animal protection laws involving companion animals, animal cruelty and fighting, wildlife, animals and research, horses, and farm animals. The top ranking states in the 2010 survey includes California, New Jersey, Colorado, Main, and Massachusetts.
A study conducted by the Ethology and Animal Welfare Unit of Cardenal-Herrera University examined 1,568 animal houses in 63 Spanish zoos and concluded that there is potential for animals in zoos to escape due to insecure housing or by getting through physical barriers surrounding their enclosures.
