I don't highlight each of these stories, but I've noticed they're growing more common, and it's indicatative of a general shift in perception: "Officials in Barren County are working to save the lives of more than 200 cattle today as they gather and move animals from farms owned by Tom Holmes Sr." This is the second time that Holmes has been charged with cruelty to animals relating to the condition of his cattle. What's noteworthy is that farming animals inherently involves cruelty to them, yet food animals have routinely been seen as exempt from concern, at least up to the moment they're killed. More and more, even if on a case-by-case basis, this wall of apathy is being dismantled.
