"I am a friend of the footless,
I am a friend of all bipeds,
I am a friend of those with four feet,
I am a friend too of any many-footed!"
Anguttara Nikaya IV 67
It is so important for us as humans to remember to take care of innocent beings, such as animals, as they sometimes cannot care for or protect themselves.
All animals should be treated with care and compassion, and not used for a human's selfish gain or hunger.
I believe animals are the most spiritual beings on this Earth, and we should treat them with the utmost respect.
