Be aware of animal’s feelings

Hi everyone, here comes a question which perhaps many of us can’t answer or not even want to think about …

Do animals have feelings?

Read this it might give you an idea:Plover chick 2 _ Sandy Bröcking _Think Smart & Lose Weight

For the last two weeks a couple of Plovers were raising their chick in our neighbourhood where Plover mum and chick spent most of the day inPlover chick 2 _Sandy Bröcking_Think Smart & Lose Weight our front yard and also slept there at exactly the same spot each night.

As you perhaps know, Plovers are very protective birds and both parents spent day and night watching their little chick and protecting it from predators.

Today the little chick died.

The parents did not have a chance – it was run over by a car.

Listen to this:

Hours after the fatal crash the chick’s parents were still sitting next to the road protecting their helpless dead chick. At times, you could see them almost kneeling on the road next to its dead body.

When night came, mum Plover returned back to the exact spot where she had slept with her chick for the last two weeks. Why? You tell me …

Can we learn something from this?

Certainly, if you think animals don’t have feelings … You may want to think again!

If you don’t care … imagine you were born as a Plover and it was your child – would you care?

If you drive a car – isn’t it worth to always carefully watch the road? Isn’t it worth to focus on your driving and not be drunk or distracted by your mobile phone? Isn’t it worth to slow down, adjust your speed and save lives?

It could be your child, your friend, your cat, your dog … it could be you.

Whatever you think about the feelings of animals – think again …
