If there is still anyone out there that believes animals don’t feel pain, at least in the way that humans do, I would urge them to check out a news story covered both yesterday.

This piece of film comes with warnings, because it really is so heartbreaking. It follows the rescue of a koala from the bush fires that are raging in Australia. This particular animal was trapped in a burning tree and was itself burning. A woman plucks it from the tree and carries it to safety, where she lays it on the ground and pours water on it. The cries from the koala are heart-rending and I would challenge anyone to watch it and not be upset.

The good news is that the koala is being treated in a special wild-life hospital and it is hoped that it will make sufficient recovery to be released back into the wild.

It is way past the time when everyone should treat animals with respect and compassion. They do have feelings, fears and emotions. They cannot be treated as just another commercial product that is there for man-unkind to exploit as and when they wish.

This video is just over three minutes long. The opening part concerns the koala, while the video goes on to discuss other impacts that these bush fires have had.
