Great article. This quote stood out most for me and I think it sums up the thinking behind these animal rights activists, conservationists and ethicists. They are trying to stop people from having any contact with animals; including the ability to own them as pets. They just want to make peoples lives miserable so we can live up to their unrealistic moral codes. They are thinking with emotion, not reason. It's why animals continue to go extinct; because those working in these animal fields are not tailoring their conservation programs to suit the reality of the world.
