We the human race, consider their lives, their feelings, their pain, their pleading and their need for our protection as the sentient beings of this planet, as it were nothing.

We tease them, hunt them, kill them, eat them, torture them starve them
We destroy their habitat, curtail their breeding and eliminate their food sources.
