Compassion For Other Species
Nearly all man’s woes stem from his lack of compassion for other species. Huh? Man’s problems are nearly all about destroying the environment that sustains him. If he had any consideration at all for other species, he would not do that.~ Roedy (born: 1948-02-04 age: 67)
|Cetacean Captivity||Debate on whether is as right to keep cetateans in captivity. 2015-01-26|
|Cetacean Intelligence||Captain Paul Watson, similar to what I did, argues that cetatceans are considerably more intelligent that humans. 2015-03-03|
|Seal Hunt||The Canadian commercial seal hunt is a barbaric bloodlust ritual where baby seals are beaten to death with spiked clubs and also skinned alive, all for no economic benefit. Its motive is simple sadism. 2015-02-23|
|Cetacean Intelligence||Cetaceans (Whales and dolphins) are intelligent. I give mostly personal experiences as evidence. This issue is particularly important because members of the Makah Indian band in Washington state have revived the ancient religious rites of whale sacrifice. The Makah along with most people are convinced that whales are just big cows and so it is perfectly OK to kill them. 2015-03-24|

|Quotations about Animal Rights||Quotations about Animal Rights, animal cruely, animal intelligence. 2015-03-28|
|Animal Slaves||Modern day animals are treated with much the same disdain slaves were in past. We will have an awakening to that suffering. 2015-03-24|
|Whale Torture||The US Navy is using low frequency sounds millions of times louder than considered safe for human divers. These are tormenting whales driving them to suicide. 2015-01-09|
|Protest Japanese Whale Hunting||Japan kills 90 whales a year in the name of research and sells the carcasses as food. The Japanese Mitsubishi Electric plans a salt plant that will send gray whales into extinction. 2015-01-26|
|Protest Makah Whale Hunting||Members of the Makah Indian band in Washington state want to revive the ancient religious rites of whale sacrifice, only now using high power boats and high power weapons. The point of the exercise is not money or food, but to improve their self esteem. Why not revive the rites of human sacrifice while you are at it? 2015-03-23|

|Whale Sacrifice Banned||Sanity has prevailed and the Makah gray whale hunt in the USA has been banned. 2015-03-26|
|Dolphin Slaughter||The Japanese are about to slaughter 17,000 dolphins. We stopped the Makah’s lunacy. Surely we can also wake up the Japanese to the stupidity and cruelty of what they are doing. 2015-03-26|

Cat KillersDomestic cats kill billions of endangered songbirds each year. There is opposition to stopping them for the following reasons:
- Cats are doted on as pets and owners think cats should be free to kill birds because cats enjoy killing birds.
- Cats are not malicious. It is their nature to catch and eat birds, so we should let them.
- There are other ways birds are killed, such as windmills. Why pick on cats?
- Cats are not an invasive species. They are people.
My thinking is all these reasons are irrelevant. We have to do something to stop the loss of so many endangered birds which are important to agriculture for insect control. It is not about punishing cats, but protecting birds. Possible measures include:
~ Roedy (born: 1948-02-04 age: 67)
- Dogs are not permitted to roam free killing wildlife, even if they have licences. The same rules should apply to cats.
- Some kind of high tech collar for a cat that warns birds of a pending attack. At the owner’s option, it might be smart enough not to warn mice.
