Letter: COVID-19 shows animals merit more care,
concern 1

Novelist Milan Kundera wrote that, “Humanity’s true moral test, its fundamental test, consists of its attitude towards those who are at its mercy: animals.” (“The Unbearable Lightness of Being,” 1984)

As we slog through this pandemic, we should all be constantly reminded that COVID-19 was human-caused, a direct result of our gross mistreatment and abuse of other animals, both wild and domestic. That fact deserves noting in all media coverage of this nightmare.

If nothing else, COVID-19 should teach us all a much-needed lesson in humility, plus a dose of concern and compassion for others, humans and non-humans alike. Serious changes are in order. Are we up to the task?
