Stray Dogs Brutally Assaulted

Animal abusers have struck again. This time they have tried to burn a stray dog alive! This cruel and sad incident happened in Delhi in India where some animal abusers poured petrol on a street dog and set it ablaze. The dog was rescued by some animal care activists and given medical treatment.

What is alarming that such incidents have increased over the past four-five years, and are now reported almost every week. And what is very disturbing is that the dogs are abused in specific parts of their body, such as their genitalia!! The dog which was attacked recently, suffered heavy burns on its belly and testes! This is really sick.

After so much of spread of education and activism about animal compassion and animal rights and welfare, instead of being tolerant to animals; people are turning more and more violent towards them! Dogs are deliberately harmed with poison, burning, slashing, acid and beating. These cruel actions clearly show a total lack of value of life and disregard for animals as living beings. As a society, we need to learn to regard animals as living beings like us. We need to respect them as individuals as we respect pther humans. Most importantly, we need to learn that we exist on the planet only because of animals. If they perish, we will perish, too.

Rampaging Elephant Rescues Baby

An elephant smashed a house to bits in a village in India but when it heard a 10 month old baby crying under the debris, it turned back and carefully removed every last bit of stone, brick and mortar from the infant's body before heading back to the forest!

This incident proves once again that animals have emotions and wisdom, and they have them in abundance. An otherwise ruthless killer or thief might not have returned to rescue his own victim, but an animal did it. Doesn't this prove the need for us to think about animals in another and a better perspective?

Animals, like humans, have their own individual personalities, and need to be respected for who they are. More importantly, they are needed on the planet very much for the survival of the mankind, but we humans seem to be oblivious of this vital fact! We are killing animals and cutting trees like we have another planet in reserve to live on! Wake up humans, you have nowhere to go, and if you want your children, and their children, to survive; you'll have to stop killing animals and destroying the ecosystems.
