Humans are the cruelest species on the planet. It is good to see a little progress, now to outlaw killing animals altogether!

Great step forward....But it is still not saving animals from been skinned for fur coats.....The answer is, Just ban fur...that would end all the cruelty and suffering, if people were forced to stop wearing it. It was done years ago, and should be enforced again.....
