In my opinion, all living things are to have equal rights.
Tell me Siretsap, have you ever had a piece of bacon? How bout some fried chicken? They are some of the "higher" and moreintelagent animials there, however, there are no animals treated with more cruelty and disrespect in the world, billions are tortured and sluaghterd every year.
Yet people don't give them a second thought.
But an already dead dog, or a cat, heaven forbid!!
