Aside from animals killed from meat and fur, the animal world is suffering at our hands. Now, I'm not ranting to be pessimistic about mankind. Thankfully, the amount of people who are trying to do the right thing is slowly, but surely rising. It's a good thing. And I am proud to be a part of that movement, however, I think it is immensely important that the general public be educated about the sentience of animals.
Now, I don't think that's the single solution to the madness. However, I think it's an important part. If most people knew how immensely intelligent orcas were from the beginning, would they have supported SeaWorld and places like it? Had people known how intelligent pigs were, would they be happy with the current treatment of them? Maybe, maybe not. But I think it's a great place to start.
