Animals are not ours to use, abuse, eat or wear. As stewards of the planet, it is our responsibility to protect all animals from … well, us! Animals have a right to live free. Like us, they feel love, grief, pain, fear, loneliness and happiness.
How would we feel if our kids were stolen for display at zoos or killed for their skin and meat? Captivity and cruelty is not conservation, entertainment or sports. And murder is not vanity. Our family outings and the products we buy or eat support these cruel activities. Let’s end our support for these barbaric actions.
