Video Sunday

Absolutely fantastic video of an elephant painting.

And no, it's not fake--here's the verification on snopes, and that site includes some interesting additional links.

It boggles my mind that anyone could think of animals as 'less than', or as 'things'.

They are sentient beings.
Intelligent beings.

When Genesis speaks of man having dominion over animals, the actual translation means stewardship, or "to care for".

I have to agree that animals are amazing, intelligent creatures with personalities, souls, and feelings. Not many people know this but I have an elephant tattoo on my ankle. :)

I also have some big news going on over at the blog. If you have a moment, stop on by and check it out. :)

HUGS!

Did you know that the Catholic Church, under Pope John Paul was very pro animal rights? They even endorsed PETA, somewhat officially I believe.
I have seen the paintings made by elephants but never have I seen it in action so thanks.
