In Reference to: Double Standards in Animal World
Well said Jenny! You are so right. The double standards our society holds when it comes to animals are unbelievable. People are (rightly) horrified when cases of cruelty towards cats, dogs and other animals that are not considered food appear on the news, but then sit down to eat the corpses of other animals who were treated just as cruelly and suffered just as much.
It is time we stopped drawing a distinction between the animals we love and the ones that we murder because we enjoy the taste of their flesh. We as a society need to wake up to the fact that all animals deserve our respect, kindness and protection. There is no excuse for eating them - ever.
