Yes, the first thing we read about farmer Jones is,

“Mr. Jones, of the Manor Farm, had locked the hen-houses for the night, but was too drunk to remember to shut the popholes.”

This is the image we get of Jones and really humanity as a whole. He is a drunk and he is mean. He controls and he punishes. It is as if being human, like Jones, is an inherent disease which we think the animals are immune to.
