Creatures of Discomfort

 

The concept of cruelty to animals is relatively recent. But we're still waiting for someone to make an issue out of cruelty to humans -- by animals. As these stories illustrate, animals of all kinds -- including dogs, cats, kangaroos and fish -- can be downright thoughtless, inflicting undue stress on us. Considering they don't have the ability to reason, perhaps we shouldn't hold them accountable. Of course, that rationale hasn't stopped more than a few executions in Texas.
