Its true animals are better then humans, animals care for each other no matter what they look like, awhile humans hate other humans because of the color of their skin.

No surprises here for me. LOL But it is sad when we consider how they are often treated, and they must remember the pain. Noted, tweeted, shared, tweeted.

It is only human's inflated ego that deludes them into believing themselves superior to the animals.
