My Brother’s Pigeons

We don’t know from where we human being got the believe
that all the creature on this planet are in our favor.
We have allowed ourselves to behead and eat them, make them fight for our own fun. We like to gamble on their death and suffering. We have given ourselves the right to cage them or make them display in worst conditions to make money.
I saw numerous scenes of beheading without a flinch whenever I went to a poultry market.
They behead chickens, roosters, geese and ducks in front of other poultry as if they want to hurt other living poultry. I was never thinking of how tired and afraid these creatures might be.
Humans don’t shy away from hurting animals to satisfy their desires. They make animals confront one another while they laugh.
These injustices are done to animals and poultry, but there are some few but meaningful efforts under way, making us somehow hopeful. We hope to see more of these efforts.
They demand us to learn this universe is not in our disposal, all creatures has the right to live freely.
we don’t have the right to eat them or abuse them for our entertainment.
