Animal Writes
From 2 May 2004 Issue

Memorable Quote

"Humans -- who enslave, castrate, experiment on and fillet other animals --
have 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, make them work for us, wear them and eat them
without any disquieting tinges of guilt or regret. It is unseemly of us, who
often behave so unfeeling toward other animals, to contend that only
human animals can suffer. The behavior of other animals renders such
pretensions specious."
~ Carl Sagan, "Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors"
