A LESSON IN HUMANITY
I have been accused of preferring the company of my dogs to most people and this report from Colorado only bolsters my attitude. An all too common tragedy was played out on a local freeway. A stray dog was hit by a car and left injured in the road while motorists callously went on their way. However, there were two things about this incident that were uncommon. One, the whole thing was caught on camera. Two, another dog risks his own life to pull the injured dog out of traffic. What an incredible statement on our society. Orwell was right. Some animals are more equal than others.
