For kids who love animals by a kid who loves animals
In a recent post, I shared how, throughout history, humans have sometimes used animals for their own purposes, and sometimes those purposes were and are not nice:
I wondered if humans using animals this way is cruel. The Humane Society defines animal cruelty as “either deliberate abuse or simply the failure to take care of an animal.”
Under this definition, maybe using animals in nefarious ways isn’t cruel, but I’m not sure that makes it right.
What about you?
