  1. This is absolutely heart breaking… Animals have a soul just as “humans” do, and they feel just as much pain both mentally and physically, as “humans” do. So why are we allowing them to suffer in such blatant, horrific ways??

    I think one reason is we need more voices like yours. The more you speak, the more we learn, the more I learn… Thank you for all you share.
