What a strange world we live in, whilst Syria is being pounded to dust, Somali is overrun by Islamists and Pakistan is almost in a civil war... we worry about the 'rights' of mammals that couldn't hack it on land.
Why do we care more for animals than our fellow man?
Seems like an inherent flaw humanity (especially in the West) has developed over the last 50 years.
And no, I do not roast cats or have carnal relations with squirrels.
See my post on page 2. I can back up all those facts with sources if need be.
As soon as dolphins declare their own rights, we can talk.

Dolphins are actually pretty close to us in terms of emotion I'd wager. They do a lot of things that very few animals, and sometimes only also humans, do. That said, I still think we are as completely alien to them as we are to them, so they might as well just be another animal.
