Imagine you are alone in a street and have nowhere to go or to get any help from and you are so hungry that every step you take sends excruciating pain throughout your body. There are thousands of people passing by but none bother to pay attention or aid you in any way while you are lying on the cold damp pavement, unaided and completely exhausted. Now, if animals are able to think and feel emotions, which they completely do, then it’s definitely what the numerous stray dogs and cats experience every single day. Now is leaving them to their misery the right thing to do? Or is directly euthanizing them to control population even humane? I believe strongly that it is up to humans and their efforts to protect those in need. I also claim that all humans have an ethical obligation to provide help those who are so dependent on us , to animals deprived of essential care and love.
