An­i­mals less evil

Bangkok Post - - OPINION -

Som­sak Pola in his Feb 13 let­ter wants to know why the wildlife an­i­mals who were re­cently killed were given more sym­pa­thy than the red shirts who died dur­ing their 2010 re­volt.

Maybe the dif­fer­ence is that the an­i­mals didn’t at­tempt to burn down the city of Bangkok or over­run a hos­pi­tal ter­ror­is­ing the in­no­cent peo­ple there.

It is the height of hu­man ar­ro­gance to be­lieve that only hu­man life mat­ters when an­i­mals can suf­fer just as much and are far less evil.
