Do you ever wonder how many stories like this it would take to make the average human start treating other animals with some respect? I would wonder if I had more respect for the average human, but who wants to consider the intelligence and emotions of animals? That might make people think twice about eating, shooting, skinning, caging, drugging, and using them for amusement.
Maybe not the best story to make my point since it involves captive rooks, but that's the top story today on a great blog I just discovered. The Water Cache Project gathers dozens of wildlife stories almost every day and provides links to them. Bears, raccoons, skunks, deer, cougars, bighorn sheep, eagles, turtles, and wolves are all found on today's list. And that blog goes to the top of my list.
