The 2011 US Animal Protection Laws Rankings from the Animal Legal Defense Fund were released this month.
Kentucky is ranked last on the list, due to its extremely weak laws. The state has been at the bottom for the past five years. The other four states on the Worst Five list are Idaho, North Dakota, South Dakota and Iowa.
The Top Five states are California, Oregon, Maine, Michigan and Illinois – with Illinois coming in again at No. 1 for the fourth year in a row.
