Sir: As a superior species on this planet we fail miserably in being compassionate to those who are at our mercy. At no time in human history have animals suffered at the hand of mankind as much as now.

Mahatma Gandhi said: "The greatness of a nation and its moral progress should be judged by the way it treats its animals." As we approach the 21st century, mankind should make peace with the animal kingdom.
