Humans love animals. From when we are very little, we learn that the cow says “moo” and the duck goes “quack”.
There are many animals in children’s stories. Just think of fables like The Tortoise and the Hare, or fairy-tales like Goldilocks and the Three Bears.
Sometimes, when we get older, we keep cats and dogs as pets. We love watching nature programmes on the TV.
Do we love animals more than humans?
Yes! Animals are not confusing like humans. They do not say cruel things. They are cute, funny and wonderful.
No! Animals are nice, but we do not really love them. We love our family and our friends, who look after us and really understand us.
- Do you love animals or humans more?
