I love animals. I have quite a few of my own, and love training horses and dogs. I run into the people who "choose animals over humans" all the
time. I do not consider myself one of them and I feel at odds with their attitudes usually. They speak of how humans abuse, but in the next breath,
have no problem saying they'll hurt or kill a human.
For me the problem is that humans ARE animals!
I am not talking anthropomorphism (seeing human characteristics in animals), but rather, the opposite.
All the same instincts one finds in animals, are also in humans. So, how then can one justify that they can see an animal do something brutal or
violent, and say, "It is not their fault, they were defending themself from percieved threat" (or were asserting their dominance, protecting their
territory, have a conditioned reaction to past abuse, etc.) without giving this same sort of comprehension to humans as well???
Humans do all that, they are just as vulnerable to being conditioned by experiences, and for the most part, are not consciously aware or in control of
any of it!
How is it one can be interested in healing animals and not people?
