Thank you. This is a well considered overview.

Also re: zdgroff's comment about modernity and tradition; I wonder if there's any chance a movement could connect traditional forms of respect for animals with the modern 'science', welfarist orientation so that the early 'gains' aren't lost.

Here's a paper about Shanghai 19th cent https://muse.jhu.edu/article/492543 - British animal welfare groups failed in their campaign against cruelty to animals, while Chinese dropped their traditional respect for the cow, began to follow foreign customs and eat beef.
