Why am I more emotional toward animals than people?
If someone on the news ran into a bear killing them both, why do I feel sorry for the bear? I'd be thinking in my head, "Stupid person, should've been watching the road, poor bear".
Or if I read or see an animal starving to death, like being able to see a dog's ribcage or slagging eyes, I want to cry. But when I see humans do the same think I can't help but feel as though it's their fault and we're just dirty creatures like that.
