Since when do lower animals have rights?
I don't know the answer to that. I do know that if wolves could speak they would say, "please don't kill me, I'm just doing my thing," or something along those lines. Personally, I'm more concerned for these animals than I am for the supposed threat they create for humans. Why? I know these animals don't have weapons of mass destruction. I know these animals aren't plotting against our existence.
So why are they a threat? Are they pushing drugs on small children? No. Driving drunk? No, that's just too absurd to imagine. So what's with the animosity?
It's a large galaxy, the Milky Way, and our planet is the only one supporting life right now, so let's support our fellow beings. Sure, wolves aren't nearly as adorable as panda bears or as useful to us as other domesticated canines, but they do want to survive.
I don't want to have to dress up as a ghost to scare people into leaving these creatures alone, and I won't, but I want you to know that people do care about this issue.
