Why is it that we as humans need to put a human “face” on everything we own or come in contact with; our cars, boats, pets, etcetera? I suppose it revolves around how fond we are of something that we feel the need to personalize it. This can be especially true of pet owners. Many pet owners will go to great lengths to humanize their animals, sometimes to the point that it is detrimental to the animal’s natural order. Some animal rights activists would have us believe that animals should have the same moral and legal rights, with legal representation no less, as humans. There are those in positions of power within the government who are pushing an animal rights agenda under the guise of climate and environmental concern. When legislators strive to create laws in order to push their own personal agendas as animal rights activists it is a misuse of their position - a position they were given by U.S. voters who trusted them to make decisions based on the needs of the vast majority, not pet activist groups or personal preference.
