PBS NATURE: Animal Odd Couples
A lot of people, in both religious and scientific circles(as well as neither), have this indoctrinated practical attitude towards animals that crosses the line into being frigid and cruel. Animals feel, they think and they have empathy. This video proves it. Please watch this video.
"Any fool can destroy trees. They cannot run away; and if they could, they would still be destroyed — chased and hunted down as long as fun or a dollar could be got out of their bark hides, branching horns, or magnificent bole backbones… Through all the wonderful, eventful centuries since Christ’s time — and long before that — God has cared for these trees… but he cannot save them from fools — only Uncle Sam can do that."
- John Muir, father of American conservation - 1897 (via sciencecenter)
