Got it and back at ya!<quoted text>
There are those who insist, for whatever reason(s), that humans are separate from and superior to all other animals. They get offended when humans are compared to other animals. The phrasing alone, "other animals", is enough to anger some.
In my experience...
If one starts talking animal welfare... or the consequences of out-of-control human population and our desire to conquer and tame every corner of the globe...
All of a sudden, their tune changes to something akin to this...
"Show me an animal that wouldn't do the same if it could."
"Show me an animal that would intentionally govern its own species' population."
Well, guess what?...
Those are comparisons... one animal to another.
Show me an animal with the ability to comprehend the issues and do something about them.
I can think of one.
In case you hadn't noticed, I sent you a PM.
Anyway, I'm about out of here for the day- much to do, places to go and people to see.
Happy Friday and have a great weekend!
