How egocentric of humans to think we are the only beings who can think, feel, bond with others, etc. As the “dominating” species, we have a responsibility to care for and protect the entire planet, including the other animals. Those who describe animals as not having any thoughts or feelings come closer to the description they’re trying to describe. Its enormously puzzling that extreme suffering only gets widely questioned if it is the suffering of members of the human species. It is extraordinary how many people just accept the appalling treatment of such a vast number of animals. Animals have souls and we have a duty to respect them! Anything less is to deny one’s humanity and one’s own soul! Numerous stories outlined in this book prove this point, beyond the shadow of a doubt.
