Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

The 54-year-old keeper, Mario, has worked at the zoo for almost 25 years and now has terminal cancer. He asked to be taken to the giraffe enclosure one last time to say goodbye to the animals.

I don't think their souls are the same as ours, but when I read stories like this, I wonder if we have underestimated animals.

Are their souls the same as ours? No, but I believe 100% that God loves ALL of His Creation and that he has a further plan for animals - to think that a great majority of them live their short lives in such pain and horrible circumstances, die, and don't exist anymore in any form is too cruel a thought. Revelation does mention animals worshiping at the Throne of God.
