Animal Writes
21 April 1999 Issue
Quote To Remember

"Humans - who enslave, castrate, experiment on, and fillet other animals -
have had an understandable penchant for pretending animals do not feel
pain. A sharp distinction between humans and "animals" is essential if we
are to bend them to our will, wear them, eat them - without any disquieting
tinges of guilt or regret. It is unseemly of us, who often behave so
unfeelingly toward other animals, to contend that only humans can suffer.
The behavior of other animals renders such pretensions specious.
They are just too much like us."
-- Drs. Carl Sagan & Ann Druyan, Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors
