There are some excellent points raised in this post. Changes need to be made. But sadly I don’t think it’ll happen any time soon.
When I began writing about animal welfare issues, I naively thought that what was missing in the community was a lack of focused leadership, and that if only more people knew the truth about the plight of many animals around the world, we could join together and make positive changes.
Oh, what a fool I was.
What do I know today? That the pet industry is one of the fastest growing in many places around the world. Animals appear in more commercials than they don’t. Looking at cute animal pictures on the Internet is one of the biggest time thieves in modern-day life.
While at the same time, human commitment to animal welfare has declined in the past eight years.
Humans are responsible for the almost-certain extinction of elephants, rhinos, and tigers.
