The honest answer is: I don't care that much about humans. I care more about animals. It sounds cold, it sounds unnatural but it's the truth. There is just something that we humans have lost and animals still have that I wish we still had. Innocence maybe? Or perhaps it is all the human brutality that I have seen inflicted to the shelter, farm and wild animals?
This, of course, doesn't mean I hate human beings or I won't help out from time to time, but If I had to choose between helping a person or an animal in need I would probably find myself at a very difficult ethical crossroad. Based on past experiences, I would go with my gut and probably choose the animal.
Anybody feel this way?

If anything it is the animal aspect of mankind that is the root of all evils.
Get between an animal and what it wants it will kill you to get it.
I say this as an animal lover too. I currently have 5 cats and 4 fish tanks. would have a dog if I could too.
But animals are cruel things. they will always pick on or kill the weakest link.
Getting people to value animal life above human life is part of the agenda. Don't fall for it.

I would never try to save its life or rehabilitate it. Its just an animal.
We had a huge feral cat problem so a few of us spent a couple nights rounding them up, shooting them, and feeding them to the coyotes.
They are just as bad but at least they try to hide from you.
