In America, we have a Puritan foundation to our culture that espouses the philosphy that people are responsible for themselves in the eyes of God and their neighbors. We also have a very distinct instinct towards individual privacy, so often feel that to get in people's faces to help them about their individual situations is intrusive and, frankly, none of our business...I"m not saying this attitude is right, I"m saying this attitude exists in some form or another with all americans but with animals, we feel none of these cultural limitations....animals have no right to privacy, we can get up into their grill and take action however way we see fit, we feel an empowerment to act in their behalf and that encourages feelings of empathy....maybe that what it is but I'm not betting the house on it.
What? He's asking why we are so nice to animals.
I'm answering with one eye to the question and one to Grunt's answer , I guess. That man couldn't get any more Conservative, even if he was cloned from the zygot grown from combing the DNA of the toe nail shavings of Barry Goldwater and the sweepings from the floor of Ayn Rand's hairdresser
Because most animals in other countries are eaten, in America most animals are made into pets.
any were in north america they care for animals exsept for the once that abuse animals but other countrys eat dogs and cats.
There was a newspaper article about a man who lived under a bridge with his dog. There were over 500 letters asking to adopt the dog. No one asked about the homeless man.
The American attitude to animals is far from unique it exists in many other countries.
at the homeless shelter if a dog is brought there, they get it water right away, but the people sit in the heat and they dont even think about getting us water, people care more about anmals than they do other people
That's because humans are dangerous.
hmm, factory farming?
