The Animals Are Crying
By Elizabeth Farians, Ph.D., APE - Animals, People and the Earth

Is There Any Animal on Earth Not Exploited to Death by Man?

Bear and Cubs
Put that gun down! What will happen to my babies?

Bee
Let my honey be.

Bird
Don't cage me. I was born to be free.

Bull
Bull fighting is gross.

Calf
You treat me with unspeakable cruelty.

Cat
Overpopulation is making me homeless.

Chick
Please don't de-beak me to crowd me in a small space.

Chimp
Respect me! I have feelings and intelligence.

Circus Lion
Your burning hoops are no entertainment for me.

Cow
The rain forests are being destroyed because of your appetite for my flesh-and so the whole earth.

Coyote
I have rightful place in the natural order of the universe. Don't interfere.

Deer
I am not yours to kill to satisfy your power craze.

Dog
Please don't let them sell me to a laboratory.

Dolphin
Your tuna nets often catch me.

Duck
I'm too cute to shoot.

Elephant
Curb your greed for my tusk.

Fish
Your hooks really hurt.

Fox
"and God saw that they were good." You who call yourself religious, pay attention to your own scriptures.

Frog
Learning is better when you don't dissect me.

Goat
My milk is for my kids, not yours.

Greyhound
No animal likes racing and what happens when I don't win.

Guinea Pig
I don't want to be your guinea pig.

Horse
I do not like pulling you silly, overloaded carriages on dirty, auto-polluted city streets.

Lamb
The emphasis on meat-eating in your society is caused by your "over-masculinized," patriarchal culture.

Llama
I don't want to be your new meat -- you wicked people.

Lobster
How would you like to be boiled alive?

Mink
It takes forty of our coats to make you one bloody coat.

Mouse
I just want to be me, not genetically manipulated by you.

Penguin
Watch your oil! Don't spill it where I live, or anywhere.

Pig
If only I could fly, I'd fly out of your slaughterhouses.

Poodle
I do not enjoy being "primped," powdered or paraded.

Rabbit
Is your vanity worth my eyes?

Raccoon
You might catch even a child in your cruel leg-hold traps.

Rhesus Monkey
I don't want to be part human: It is bad for me and for you.

Rodeo Animal
How do you think I like the rodeo?

Rooster
Do you own fighting, macho-man.

Seal
I am only a baby. Please don't club me to death.

Sheep
Sheering contests are no fun for me.

Snake
Who said that I am evil and that you should tread on me?

Spotted Owl
Think! You don't have to destroy my habitat.

Turtle
Mock-Mock soup is better than the real thing.

Listen man! Animals are not yours to kill, wear, eat, exploit, in entertainment or use in experiments. Clean up your act. Control your population and your greed. Try a little compassion so that all species might live in harmony on planet earth.
