“The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.” -Mahatma Gandhi
There is much debate on whether or not Gandhi actually said this, but for my purposes it’ll work to help me get the ball rolling. It’s a good quote after all. The question I will try to tackle within the next few sentences is do we, the “stronger” more able species, have the duty to protect our weaker more vulnerable counterparts, animals? What do you think? Please know that I will not be trying to change your lifestyle or make you feel a certain way. However, if some change occurs, preferably a positive one, then good for you. You’re already a better person than I am who enjoys eating products that come from animals, and going out fishing.
