Its One Of The Main Reasons Although It Aint The Only One !I've come across kind people who are sensitive to every emotion of anyone around them. They love pets and nature and everything that they perceive as lovable. They will go to any extent to keep their pets (dogs/cats) happy and treat them just like another member of their family. Then, they sit down for food and do not mind munching on the flesh of an animal that was slaughtered just to fill up a hungry humans tummy. That animal was once a bird, an animal, a pain experiencing life.
I love all animals indiscriminately and cannot love a dog more than hens or fishes.
There can't be peace in this world if we categorize animals into lovable and eatable.
