States ranked by animal cruelty statutes

The Animal Legal Defense Fund claims to have ranked the fifty states according to how well their statutes defend animals (More here).

Here's their map of the best and the worst in terms of animal protection:



It is possible that the culture of a state is weakly correlated with the letter of the laws of that state, but for the most part I bet the culture is strongly correlated with the letter of the law. Therefore, I wonder if it is slightly ironic that the state of Virginia is supposedly "top tier"?
