Are we special because the sight of cruelty to animals sends us to despair, rips our heart out and makes us cry?
The people who stand by and encourage or endorse these acts of cruelty are not people of G-d or any other decent people; they are barbaric maybe even sick mentally without even realising it.
Would you stand by and watch something screaming in pain without helping? No you wouldn't, if you had a conscience or even half a brain cell.
I am against animal cruelty.
