Why Animals Matter
A book by Erin E. Williams and Margo DeMello called Why Animals Matter that is sure to ruffle some feathers if you are unaware of the way animals are treated on a daily basis. Review by the Environmental Blog coming soon.
“Perhaps the biggest reason why society tolerates routine abuse of animals is that for the most part, these abuses are hidden.”
“While we can purchase cheaper meat from animals who never experienced sun or air,” they venture (and by using the pronoun “who” in reference to nonhumans they make a deliberate political choice), “while we can buy virtually any animal we want as a pet, while scientists can create mice with human genes and even with human tissue, and while rich hunters can pay thousands of dollars to shoot an endangered, tranquilized animal, most of us, if we knew the realities behind those choices, would take a step back and reconsider … just because we can do all these things, should we?”
