Referring to the way we treat animals, Dr. Bekoff states, “We must not simply continue with the status quo because that is what we've always done and it's convenient to do so.”
“Quite often, what we accept as "good welfare" isn't "good enough." Marc Bekoff also raises the issue of our silencing the emotions of animals, when it is their emotions that indicate what we can or cannot do to them.
