Most people prefer animals to humans because animals are fluffy and cute and nice and humans have this bad habit of doing everything wrong and talking too much while they’re at it.
See, we’ve kind of done it already here, haven’t we?
Animals also have the wonderful trait of looking past all of the flaws of the human race and sticking with us anyway, and for some reason they even sometimes go as far as risking their own lives to save ours.
Take this awesome baby elephant for example, Kham Lha at Elephant Nature Park in Thailand. She recently went viral for jumping into a fast flowing river to save her keeper Darrick when she thought he was drowning.
