Animals rights?[edit]

Does using animals in sports automatically raise concerns for animals rights? Does it do it to a sufficiently universal degree that it belongs in the lead paragraph?

I think swapping it to animal welfare would be reasonable. Animals in sport need and receive concern for their welfare. Whether the observer believes that the animal has inherent rights is not generally changed by the animal participating in a sport. Tangledweb (talk) 19:28, 30 April 2013 (UTC)
