Just as Bad as Abuse.

When we think of animal cruelty, the word "abuse" comes flying to our minds. In reality, animals are just as mistreated by neglect and exploitation.

Webster's defines neglect as:

1 : to give little attention or respect to : DISREGARD
2 : to leave undone or unattended to especially through carelessness

Not supplying an animal with the required amount of food, water, shelter, veterinary care and love for it to thrive under human care is neglect. Not intervening to help an animal who has come across a dangerous or unhealty situation is neglect. Not giving a flying fuck? You guessed it; neglect.

Webster's defines exploitation as:

1 : to make productive use of : UTILIZE
2 : to make use of meanly or unjustly for one's own advantage

Circuses and rodeos are some of the cruelest events around today. Not to mention bull-fighting, cock fighting and dog fighting. Using animal as a source of entertainment without putting the animal's health and welfare first is exploitation.
