I'm aware that the justice system prevents some of this, but a lot of it, they won't even touch on. Take horse tripping, for example. It's been banned in a few states, but then the question arises, if they ban horse tripping they have to ban cattle tripping. A lot of rodeos have this as a main event. The justice system doesn't want to get involved with that.
Not even counting the things that the justice system doesn't know about
: every individual who participates in animal abuse. They don't know most of this because it's down behind closed doors.
It sucks, but it's reality: The criminal justice system will never be able to put a stop to all animal cruelty
