Animal Rights and Human Responsibility

Sunday, January 28th, 2007

Animals have no rights. When an owl swoops down and kills a field mouse for food, there is no animal police to arrest the owl for murder. The concept of rights (and justice) is a human one and does not really have a place in the Natural world.

I am often leery and cautious of people advocating “animal rights” because most these “advocates” lack the depth of understanding and can only spout slogans and catchphrases, most of which, I feel, are heartfelt but meaningless. While some others use this as a political platform (Adolf Hitler, a vegetarian and Hermann Göring, appointed Reichsforst- und Jägermeister, were animal rights activists) for control, leaving a very small minority who truly understand and care.

On the contrary, what I believe in is Human Responsibility. We are responsible for the environment and other species because our impact on them is by far the most far-reaching and influential. On a personal level, when we decide to get a pet, we become responsible for the pet. We are charged with their welfare and care.

We have a dog. We have cared for it for 16 years from abandoned puppy (we found it on the streets) to the 112+ year-old mutt (16x7yrs = 112 dog years) it is today. Apart from a collapsed ear canal, it is hale and healthy.

Unfortunately, as we have sold the house and moving on to smaller apartments that do not allow large pets, we cannot take him with us. It is very fixed in its ways and requires a huge space to run, dig and play. And as we not irresponsible people who abandon animals, the decision is to put it to sleep.

Death is as light as a feather, duty is heavier than a mountain.
