    Seriously so many people constantly whine in this country about lions or elephants being killed yet don't care about the plight of the refugees in calais. I hate to break it to you but these animals are just that, animals, they aren't nice cuddly friends and would likely kill you if they got the chance. The reason poachers don't feel guilty is because these animals destroy their lands and kill their people. I'm fed up with this colonial attitude towards other countries treatment of animals from your cozy home in the west, get some perspective please instead of believing PETA PROPAGANDA

    Animals are not attempting to commit crimes like those at Calais, who are attempting to illegally immigrate.

    It's what happens when you live a life of no worry. Most people treat their family pets with more respect and care than they would treat any stranger.

    Well in fairness my pets have never wronged me in any way unlike the vast majority of people that surround me

    Yeah, and humans don't destroy their land and kill their families.

    Animals feel pain like we do. There are humans who would very happily kill other humans given the chance. We are no different.

    I would hope you extend the courtesy of forgiveness to those you deemed to have wronged you, as well as a sense of hope in redemption of humanity.

    i forgive loads of people. if people are nice to me then i will be nice to them, however when people are daily *****es to me i have no time for it so why should they get my courtesy when they don't make the effort to apologise or respect the initial kindness i showed to them?
    and lol humans are horrible.

    The vast minority are horrible to you on a daily basis, so I refer you back to my original statement. And if it's not a minority who are horrible to you, then I would look at the common factor for reasons why that might happen. But sure, condemn the most advanced and deserving species for your forgiveness. Stick to guinea pigs who do nothing but eat and defecate. They are so much better.

    I think that just because people care about animals does not mean they can't care about other humans too.

    I agree with this! People here seem to treat animals with so much care and respect, most of the time, they spend so much money on their pets. Sometimes, it is very excessive too. Sad that they sometimes treat some people with less care, attention and respect than their pets.
