It just really doesn't make sense to put some animals in one category and others in another... We are all living feeling creatures of the planet.
10 Smartest Animals
Pigs are wise ... and clean
Here's the dirt on pigs: They are perhaps the smartest, cleanest domestic animals known - more so than cats and dogs, according to some experts. But pigs don't have sweat glands, so they roll around in the mud to stay cool. A sign of their cleverness came from experiments in the 1990s. Pigs were trained to move a cursor on a video screen with their snouts and used the cursor to distinguish between scribbles they knew and those they were seeing for the first time. They learned the task as quickly as chimpanzees.
Pigs Prove to Be Smart, if Not Vain
They’ve found that pigs are among the quickest of animals to learn a new routine, and pigs can do a circus’s worth of tricks: jump hoops, bow and stand, spin and make wordlike sounds on command, roll out rugs, herd sheep, close and open cages, play videogames with joysticks, and more. For better or worse, pigs are also slow to forget. “They can learn something on the first try, but then it’s difficult for them to unlearn it,” said Suzanne Held of the University of Bristol. “They may get scared once and then have trouble getting over it.”

Bill Maher Speaks Out Against University of Wisconsin--Madison Cat Lab Cruelty.
Published on Oct 8, 2013Comedian and host of HBO's Real Time Bill Maher speaks out in defense of cats who are mutilated, deafened, starved, and eventually killed in cruel brain experiments at the University of Wisconsin--Madison. Learn more and take action at PETA.org/UWCats.
First thing I have to say is the whole drone thing is so super scary I can't help but be against it. I really don't like the idea of things flying over me at any moment seeing and knowing my every movement.... BUT! I know they are out there and at least on this occasion they are being used for something very good.

From 20 to 57 seconds. If this is not animal abuse I don't know what is. This is wrong! Just wrong!
Have a look at Fish in Pain on Wiki and see what you think. There are other resources and info out there to find. This is just the first one I went to.
One thing about it... I don't think a fish would be looking forward to this experience. It couldn't be good for them or the environment.
In laboratories across the United States, millions of animals are suffering in horrible ways—and you're paying for it. On the taxpayers' dime, animals in laboratories are routinely mutilated, poisoned, deprived of food and water, forcibly immobilized in restraint devices, infected with painful and deadly diseases, burned, decompressed, electrocuted, irradiated, shot, addicted to drugs, and psychologically tortured.
In 2010 alone, universities, colleges, hospitals, and other institutions received approximately $12 billion for projects involving cruel experiments on animals. Public funds have recently been squandered on the following inhumane studies:
Please help PETA end this cruelty by using the form below to contact your representative and senators in Congress. Respectfully urge them to divert public money from cruel animal experiments into promising, lifesaving, and relevant clinical and non-animal research.
I'm still learning...
I'm not here to preach and even though I have gone vegetarian I still want to know where food comes from and how it gets to where it's going...
Controlled atmosphere killing (CAK) or controlled atmosphere stunning (CAS) is a method for slaughtering animals such as chickens by placing the animals in a container in which the atmosphere lacks oxygen and consists of an asphyxiant gas (one or more of argon, nitrogen or carbon dioxide), causing the animals to lose consciousness. Argon and nitrogen are important components of a gassing process which seem to cause no pain, and for this reason many consider it more humane than other methods of killing.
Controlled atmosphere stunning has been used both within processing plants and on-farm for euthanizing poultry. Anoxia in broiler chickens generated through argon or a mixture of argon and carbon dioxide or hypercapnic hypoxia seems can be used under commercial conditions. Meat tenderness and drip losses improve. The blood spots, especially those on the thighs and breasts caused by electrical stunning and hanging, disappear altogether.
Portable units are available for the on-farm slaughter of livestock. One portable unit type that costs US$2,500 can be pushed down the aisles of a barn, with 200–250 chickens per load being placed inside a CO2 enriched chamber. Chickens are unconscious within 30 seconds of being in the chamber.
Similar types of unit using nitrogen and/or argon are available for euthanasia of laboratory rodents such as Guinea pigs, although this method is considered ineffective in young or neonates.
Studies show that diving animals such as mink, and burrowing animals such as rodents and rats are sensitive to low-oxygen atmospheres and (unlike humans) will avoid them. For this reason, the use of inert gas hypoxic atmospheres for euthanasia is very species-specific.
The Case for Controlled-Atmosphere Killing
PETA PUSHES U.S. FAST-FOOD, GROCERY, AND POULTRY INDUSTRIES TO ADOPT LESS CRUEL, MORE PROFITABLE METHOD OF CHICKEN AND TURKEY SLAUGHTER
You may find the following video disturbing... This is what's really happening to millions of chickens and CAK is a walk in the park compared to other methods. I still won't be eating ANY chicken... EVER!
It's hard to watch and believe... If you don't see you won't know.
Is ignorance bliss?
