You'd Leave Your Pet Behind But You Wouldn't Leave Your Child Behind
I'm learning more about animals and their protectionn right now, and in particular what I'm wondering about is: Why would people leave their pet behind yet they would never leave their child behind? Animals are just like humans, they have feelings too, and study shows that dogs are more like us than chimps are. As I was reading in my Google Reader, an article, "Pets Wait Out ND Flood in Shelters : Discovery News", Discovery News, March 30.2009 http://dsc.discovery.com/news/2009/03/30/dakota-flood-pets.html, caught my attention because this article sort of has the same base idea as mine. Why do we treat animals as less, when they are our companions in life? And how can we take better care of them?
