- (Euthanasia is murder in the guise of "humane" treatment with horrendous karmic results. Our own distress at seeing an animal or human suffer causes us to kill and pat ourselves on the back as "humane" when it is murder with the karmic results of killing, running counter to the first precept).

Do animals help each other? (video)
Is this mongoose bumming a ride on this bird, or is something more sinister aloft? Whatever's happening, it has to be a great day for the mongoose flying. This is famous footage, and what happens is not what it seems. But for one moment, a bird became a plane, a mammal sprouted wings, and no one would believe it without video to prove it.
Animals Help and Harm Other Animals
Animals, while not human, can be very humane and heroic. Animals sometimes help save one another. They have saved humans. How did they know? Our faith in animals, which we tend to know as children, can be restored. Humans to be human must be humane.
