Animals too noble to behave vile way some humans do

Editor's Viewpoint

There is no doubt that of all the species which inhabit this Earth, the cruellest and most callous by far are humans. Take, for example, the two stories of animal abuse carried in this newspaper today.

A greyhound is dumped in the River Foyle, with its ears severed to avoid it being identified by its racing tattoo. A Labrador is found hanging from blinds in an Antrim flat, apparently having been abandoned without food or water. We often describe people who commit serious crimes as behaving like animals - but animals have a greater nobility than those who abuse them in such a vile manner as described today.
