Animal Abuse - left to bleed & die at German Laboratory

Monkeys are strapped into metal harnesses, while cats and dogs are left bleeding and dying in footage which animal rights activists claim was filmed at a German toxicology laboratory.The German animal activist organisation Soko Tierschutz together with Cruelty Free International say the alleged abuse took place at LPT Laboratory of Pharmacology and Toxicology in Mienenbuttel, on the outskirts of Hamburg. - Source
We breed, raise, and kill hundreds of billions of animals every single year, with the majority of them kept in awful conditions; especially in heavily industrialised countries that have trended towards the more efficient factory farming model.

Animal abuse tends to be thought of as an individual thing - some dickhead kicking a puppy for shits and giggles, for example - but such examples are dwarfed by this kind of systematic issue.

It remains legal, since the laws which dictate normal animal cruelty make exceptions for farm animals and any other industry big and profitable enough. These thinking, feeling, suffering animals are reduced to nothing but objects and commodities - food or entertainment or test subjects - bred to make a profit for the company that owns them. And sometimes the most profitable way of doing things isn't what's best for their welfare. If there's a country whose animal cruelty laws do hold industries up to the same standard as regular citizens, I don't know of it.

Animal cruelty is widespread, and inevitable, under such a system. We just don't legally recognise it as such, and because it happens behind closed doors, almost everyone ignores it, and even financially supports it by choosing to buy the resulting products even when they don't have to.

For more info, I suggest watching the following documentary which covers these sorts of systematic animal welfare issues.
