Random fact

The first child abuse prosecution in the US was done with the help of the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. In 1874 there were no laws against child abuse but there were laws against cruelty to horses and other livestock. It was argued that since children were property of their parents and also part of the animal kingdom, they were entitled to the same rights as horses.
