Do We Like Dogs More Than People?
Today, the news reported one of the most sickening cases of animal abuse I’ve ever heard. To hear the conditions these dogs were in prior to their ultimate euthanization turns my stomach. You could tell from the demeanor of the journalists that they, too, were disturbed by the scenes and tales they were reporting.
A few minutes later, another report aired that talked about the most recent Iraqi car bombing which killed a bunch of people. But we hear reports of Iraqi car bombs every day…so it doesn’t effect us as much as hearing about dogs with fighting wounds.
I loathe those who would abuse animals.But does it add up that we seem to be more horrified by a dog’s death than the demise of 20 other human beings?
