Gosh, don't get me going on this one
Most people have never grown up around animals nor really REALLY paid full attention to them.
Don't ever read Dominion The Power of Man, the Suffering of Animals, and the Call to Mercy by Matthew Scully and Eternal Treblinka, Our Treatment of
Animls and the holocaust by Charles Patterson.
I myself boycott zoos and circuses, however, with zoos, most animals live twice as long as their wild counterparts, although not happily as most
migrating and wandering animals, (wolves, bears,bison, dolphins, whales, etc) are use to traveling hundreds/thousands of miles and the zoo/circus
enclosures usually drive many of the animals neurologically insane.
In that video it was clear to me who was the smarter of the two and it wasn't the human.
I prefer the company of animals, vs people - people are cruel just for the fun of it - animals only are cruel when they are hungry or feel threatened,
not usually for sport.
My one dog is a puppy mill rescue
Six hours away from being put into a gassing box in Georgia she spent the first six years of her life in solitary confinement say for when "Eddie"
would put a male in with her to breed more puppies for $$$$$. When Lucy turned six, this AH turned her over to a high kill shelter which is common
for southerners to do with Pointers and Greyhounds. It has taken us two years to show Lucy how to be a family member. She now no longer cowers when
we go to pet, hug or kiss her.
So many dogs and cats just left to rot in cages, roam or killed simply because people don't take responsibility and practice good stewardship.
Scruffy was luckier, he was also a shelter dog whose family had to move into an apartment that wouldn't accept dogs so they put him in a shelter.
Adopt, spay and neuter and boycott companies that use animals in testing.
And no I'm not a vegetarian, I eat chicken but I know who I get my chicken from and they are organic, free range and killed humanely and I eat very
Many humans do not realize that they are not the only precious life form on this planet.
