Posted by kassb at 02/17/11 16:23:43Well.. I personally agree with you to some extent. I certainly believe that there are some completely ignorant people out there. Most people will say "I love cats and dogs and that makes me an animal lover." Unfortunately, many of these people have never opened their minds enough to realize that all of the other species in the world can suffer as well. I believe I have been exposed to enough animals to realize that all species feel pain and can suffer. I have many ignorant friends that can not fathom that animals can be as mistreated as some of the horror stories depicted in films such as Earthlings or another video made to expose the cruelty that goes on. I don't think it means that they don't love animals, just that they don't want to open their eyes to the possibility that we as humans are generally repulsive.
