Quotations about Animal Rights IV

Michael W. Fox, vice-president of the Humane Society, said that, "to call an animal with whom you share your life a 'pet,' is reminiscent of men's magazines where you (a figure of speech, don't take it personally) have the Pet of the Month." It is supposed that the continued use of the word "pet" to designate dogs or cats threatens to reduce their level of respect to the current status of twentieth century North American women. Now that's radical.
 ~The McGill Red Herring

People are more violently opposed to fur than leather because it's safer to harass rich women than motorcycle gangs. 
~Author Unknown

The squirrel that you kill in jest, dies in earnest. 
~Henry David Thoreau

Drinking without being thirsty and making love at any time, Madame, are the only things that distinguish us from other animals.
 ~Pierre-Augustin Caron de Beaumarchais, The Marriage of Figaro, 1784, translated

I ask people why they have deer heads on their walls. They always say because it's such a beautiful animal. There you go. I think my mother is attractive, but I have photographs of her. 
~Ellen DeGeneres

When a man wantonly destroys one of the works of man we call him a vandal. When he destroys one of the works of god we call him a sportsman. 
~Joseph Wood Krutch
Personally, I would not give a fig for any man's religion whose horse, cat and dog do not feel its benefits. Life in any form is our perpetual responsibility. ~S. Parkes Cadman

No one in the world needs a mink coat but a mink.
 ~Murray Banks

Never wear anything that panics the cat.
 ~P.J. O'Rourke

Cruelty is one fashion statement we can all do without. 
~Rue McClanahan

Ever occur to you why some of us can be this much concerned with animals suffering? Because government is not. Why not? Animals don't vote. 
~Paul Harvey

Support your right to arm bears.
 ~Cleveland Amory

Why should man expect his prayer for mercy to be heard by What is above him when he shows no mercy to what is under him? 
~Pierre Troubetzkoy

Think occasionally of the suffering of which you spare yourself the sight.
~Albert Schweitzer

Hunting is not a sport. In a sport, both sides should know they're in the game.
~Paul Rodriguez

Man is the only creature that consumes without producing. He does not give milk, he does not lay eggs, he is too weak to pull the plough, he cannot run fast enough to catch rabbits. Yet he is lord of all the animals. 
~George Orwell, Animal Farm

Cockfighting was illegal in Oklahoma until 1963, when a judge ruled that chickens are not animals and therefore unprotected by anticruelty laws. 
~U.S. News & World Report, 6 December 1999

Animals give me more pleasure through the viewfinder of a camera than they ever did in the crosshairs of a gunsight. And after I've finished "shooting," my unharmed victims are still around for others to enjoy. I have developed a deep respect for animals. I consider them fellow living creatures with certain rights that should not be violated any more than those of humans. 
~Jimmy Stewart

If we cut up beasts simply because they cannot prevent us and because we are backing our own side in the struggle for existence, it is only logical to cut up imbeciles, criminals, enemies, or capitalists for the same reasons. 
~C.S. Lewis
