Darting an African elephant is no easy task: its herd will try to revive it. A drugged lion will be killed by its pride. And a furious rhino can simply storm through sedation. Such situations are all in a day's work in the South African bush for

I am so happy! Humans are getting wiser. And a message for those people who hate animals:

A man can live and be healthy without killing animals for food; therefore, if he eats meat, he participates in taking animal life merely for the sake of his appetite.

Animals, whom we have made our slaves, we do not like to consider our equal.

"We can judge the heart of a man by his treatment of animals."

"Until one has loved an animal, a part of one's soul remains unawakened."

"Animals are my friends...and I don't eat my friends.

"If man wants freedom why keep birds and animals in cages? Truly man is the king of beasts, for his brutality exceeds them. We live by the death of others. We are burial places! I have since an early age abjured the use of meat."
