This is a very deep subject for me and i appreciate the OP for making such a touching topic close to my heart and the heart of many others.
It is amazing to see the emotions brought up over this topic. I believe if a human can find a spot in their heart for an animal and if they can love
an animal as much if not more then a human then they are better then the people who walk around and don't care about life around them.
Animals are similar to children, you have to feed them; love them; and help them with things like open doors, preparing food etc.. so if someone cant
find love in their heart for an animal i believe that person may also not know what love towards children or people is also.
Everything that bleeds red shares the same soul, big or small, tiny or tall. How much pain and torment those who give to a creature whether human or
animal who shares blood, a brain, nerves and emotions will come back to them and frankly people who are cruel to animals deserve to suffer more then
they give because they initiate that upon innocence.
Their is all this movement towards equality between races and im all for it but their is little movement towards animal and human equality, people say
its because animals cant talk (human ignorance lacks communication of any form) or because they have hair or walk on all four's.
I hope in time laws pass where people must gain a license to own an animal and are monitored because alot of people out their who own pets are not
educated enough or don't have the ability or understanding to know an animal needs as much as love and time as a human child. Cage an animal in a zoo
or taunt them in a circus (Dont get me started on them exhibitions of torture) or put them in glass in a pet shop and be constantly teased by our
freedom is cruel, Imagine the uproar if that was done to a human? Once again human ignorance allows this sort of practice, I enjoy the zoo as much as
other's but a better concept would be to only zoo injured animals or dying breeds and release them back into the wild when either better or once
numbers have increased, which brings me to my next subject.
if a species gets too much or are a threat to humans because of size or if a farm cant handle the amount of livestock they are killed by us because we
"can" its the reason species like the Tasmanian tiger got wiped out and other beautiful creatures that roamed the earth, in reality the size of the
human species as a whole is far larger than any other creature minus bugs on this planet yet we are free to roam, alot of our ignorant species i
believe need to be culled (this may sound cruel but people are cruel to animals.. but think deep about the unnecessary pain people cause to others who
are innocent or other species or even nature).
How is it fair a human swims in the ocean, gets bitten by a shark and then the sharks that are in that certain part of the ocean or beach are killed
just to satisfy this supposed human thirst for an eye for an eye which doesn't exist in the animal world, the oceans belong to things that swim and
its inhabitants were around long before us, the dumb human who got bitten should have been more careful, and how is it a dog will bite a human which i
agree is a bad thing but yet for a "bite" the dog gets "put to sleep" or "euthanized" which is another way of saying "murdered". I mean how
many humans do you know that have received the electric chair for biting someone?
i apologize to those not religious but lets not forget Noah built an ark for the "animals" not the humans, he wiped them out because of their
misdeeds, the reality is the animals had a more purer soul and were much more important then people and they are the true creatures of love, because
they don't feel hate as strongly as an emotion as humans and it is out "hate" as people which gives us the instinct to want to eradicate innocence
for no reason other then to satisfy our own urges of pointless satisfaction.
Like i said i feel strongly about animals, sometimes more over humans... i am not a vegetarian i do not eat alot of meat and don't need to be
lectured about the pain the creature may have suffered, i eat it sparingly and only for diet reasons, i eat vegetables and grains more nor am i part
of any group, just a human being who does not agree with the unneeded pain of something who cant defend them self against the inventions of man or the
emotions of them also.
on an end note, some say the spirit is connected to ghost's.. their are many case's of spirit animals also and pictures if you Google it, even
without any proof i would still believe if a human is capable of having a ghost then why cant an animal? Were all made of the same stuff at the end of
